The top race can
be removed using a screwdriver or punch and tapping it out from the
bottom of the steering neck with a hammer. Because there isn't an
exposed 'lip' of the bottom race to tap out the same way this is
usually the problem area when it comes to replacing the races. There
are a couple of methods to get the bottom race out:
Either a small portion of the inside of the
steering head can be ground away immediately above the race using
a Dremel tool or other small grinding tool/bit allowing a
punch/screwdriver to get a bite and tap it out from the top side
of the steering neck.
If you have
access to a welder you can run a bead around the middle of the
race itself. As the race cools it may fall out very easily or can
be tapped out on the weld bead from the top of the steering neck.
The steering neck paint may get burned if your not careful and do
this slowly (small sections at a time).
