I am wanting to send my throttle body out at the same time as my intake to nitroplate just so that they will match since they to mount to one another. I need to remove the bearings on the side of the butterfly valve and not sure what is the best way to go about it. I am pretty sure that they were not designed to be taken out since I could not imagine what kind of use a throttle body would need to go through to burn up a bearing, but now I need it out. I have been considering my options and asking around to see if anyone else has any ideas and come up with a few. its hard to see but you are looking directly down through the hole and the bearing is right there. My first thought was for heat/cooling too see if it would work. I thought about popping the whole thing in the oven at low temp for 10-15 mins too see if the aluminum would expand more then the steel bearings and then maybe hit with some of that Freeze off oil or some kind of cooling spray to help? Someone at napa suggested maybe trying to get a slide hammer/dent puller in it an if a good solid pull out would work. Sounds reasonable but I do not have a dent puller to try it. Another person at napa suggested using some JB weld on a bold to attach to the bearing and see if it would bond well enough to give it a solid pull. This seems the least harmful off the bat as if it fails I am stuck with a bolt with jb weld on it... I had another thought that I might be able to use these spiral flute extractor set. The largest on I can hammer down with a hammer and it would cut into the bearing but not the body to give me something to pull on, again I would need a slide hammer or maybe just go weld on/modify a set of vice grips to work as one. This option obviously will destroy the bearing if I does or des not work which I am not worried about as I am sure it can be replaced. So what would you do? Again I don't care if the bearings are scrapped in the removal but the body needs to stay as solid as it can for when the new one is pressed in. The hole in the bearing is the same size as the hole in the body so there really isn't any way to press it out that I know off unless there is a tool made for it?
