if referring to the torrington inside the gearbox, a std heatgun and a screwdriver did the trick, no injuries sustained

but to assemble the needlerollerbearing inner race onto the crankshaft is a tricky operation.
apply heat with the heatgun, then pick up the very hot inner race and position it on the exact position on the crankshaft timing side stub.
and keep holding it in position and wait for the inner race to shrink

cool your fingers and observe position of inner race, repeat untill satisfied.
and yes I wore some gloves
