I have this style ac idler bearing (not my pic)

I took the idler bearing apart, except the bearing didn't come out, rust I think, I've got it soaking in kroil ATM, is there a clever way to press it out from the back without just pressing the center race and balls out of the inner race?

Thanks,

The fellow who took that photograph above is an excellent photographer if I don't say so myself.

Pound out the old bearing anyway you want. It's being discarded. The new bearing can be tapped in with a hammer and the right sized socket that fits the outer race. Don't hammer on the center race.
