I'm looking to pull the *needle bearing* out of the bike. To make sure I'm describing the right part -- it sits inside what I think is called the "primary shaft" and "guides" the pushrod.

I've used a slide hammer and was able to grab it in the past, but it was tricky. I only used one "tooth" and was just barely able to hook the backside of the bearing.

Is there a specific tool / attachment that someone could point me to that would work better for this?

Thanks,
Tigre

BTW: Ducman -- what is the ID for the needle bearing? From memory I know it's "small" -- but I can't recall anything more accurate than that. I can measure my push rod when I get home.
