Pack it up with wheel bearing and select a tight fit driver and pound it out-

MEANING---DRIVE (HARD AND FAST) THE TIGHT FITTING DRIVER INTO THE HOLE

IF YOU HAVE IT 100% PACKED WITH GREASE---THE GREASE MUST GET OUT SOMEHOW. SO IT PUSHES THE PILOT OUT

WHAT THE TIGHT DRIVER MEANS IS---WHATEVER FITS THE "WHATEVER SIZE" INSIDE HOLE IN THE PILOT AND IS TIGHT. BUT IT WILL STILL SLIDE IN THE HOLE

SOME EXAMPLES BELOW

--OF COURSE THESE ARE DIFFERENT SIZES---WE DON'T KNOW THE HOLE SIZE YOU HAVE

A FOOT LONG PIECE OF BROOM HANDLE

A 1/2 DRIVE RATCHET EXTENSION

A 3/8 DRIVE RATCHET EXTENSION

ANY SORTA SOLID ROD

IF NOTHING ELSE---FIND THE PERFECT SIZE DEEP SOCKET. PACK THE SOCKET FULL AND TIGHT WITH TIN FOIL WITH A HAMMER AND PUNCH. NOW IT'S THE PERFECT SIZED "SOLID ROD". DRIVER!

IF THE INSIDE IS SLIGHTLY CHEWED UP---DRIVE THE DRIVER IN IT A FEW TIMES TO SORTA STRAIGHTEN IT BACK OUT

. THEN DO THE GREASE THING, AS IN THE VIDEO!

DID YOU SEE THE VIDEO?
