THROWOUT BEARING REPLACEMENT

1994 Ford Ranger

Transmission problem
1994 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles

I can't get the old throwout bearing off of the slave cylinder. I tried the methods in the book: Twisting it to put pressure against the spring, then pushing down on the spring to release it. Nothing works. I don't want to break the slave cylinder because I want to reuse it. How do I get the throwout bearing off?

I just replaced mine. I figured it out from your comments, thanks for giving me a clue.
I removed the slave cylinder so I could get a good look at it. I turned the bearing counter clockwise until it stopped. Then I pulled and twisted CCW sharply. It popped off.
I know this is late for you but maybe it will help the next guy.
