    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

removing a roller bearing

Question

So, I don't know how to get this bearing out. All the others (ball bearings) came out with some gently taps. This one isn't budging and I don't want to damage it too much before I take it out to have a look. I plan on replacing it, but its really pissing me off. (If you're wondering what the little pieces on the bottom of the case are, they are glass. The lightbulb above my work bench exploded lol)

I think you'll come up a bit short with just a plumper's torch

Its all I have. And I'm not about to spend more money on a torch I'll realistically only use once.
