Yep springier metal than coffee cans.

Vise grip slide hammer. Good for removing anything you can clamp it to.

NICE Visegrip slide hammer

When replacing corroded terminal ends on secondary wires to the battery pack I keep a tube of dielectric grease at hand and each stripped wire is poked into the grease and then put into the crimp fitting.

If the wire is small I strip 2 times the needed length and fold the stripped end in double then dip in grease and put it into the crimp fitting. These dielectric crimps are staying useful much much longer than bare crimps

In extreme cases I have also welded a shaft inside the race. Slide a heavy wall pipe over the shaft, cap the shaft with a welded plate. You can then pound the pipe against the welded plate and the race will come out with the shaft.

At just over 4 pounds and 16 inches it is handy and I am thinking now about welding a fine thread 1/2 inch bolt onto the end of a old pr of vise grips. Or possibly making an inside bearing puller attachment for Ezgo axles
