When I took my devimead timing side bearing apart the inner race had a convenient 45 degree flat on the crank side rim, after heating it popped off easily with a small chisel tapped into the bevel. When I fitted the new race I reground the bevel, glad I did , it needed to come off for a small shim to prevent the crank cheeks binding on the bearing outer, this had to be stoned a little for a few more thou relief. Although the same OD and ID the new bearing was a few thou longer than the original and a couple of subtle changes were needed to get the correct float on the ball part of the combi bearing.
