hey everyone, I'm Johnny. I have a 1990 Ford F1 50 lariat. I'm putting in a new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing and I have everything out except the pilot bearing. There is not enough space behind the bearing for the puller to grab. I've tried the paper method, grease, bread, 3 different pulleys and that stubborn thing will not budge. I've wasted too much time. Can someone offer another way. Thank you.

Try drilling a couple holes in the pilot bearing and put some screws in the freshly drilled holes-then you can use a pulled against the screws

Even a carbide drill bit will not penetrate. That is some of the hardest steel made
