MTD impeller shaft bearing removal

I am trying to remove the impeller shaft and it seems to be stuck in the bearing. Is there a trick to getting it off?

From just looking at the picture, without being there in person, I would spray some Trizol on it where the bearing is against the housing, or any weasel piss, and put the bolt back in tight, so not to mushroom the end, and tap it out of the case housing.

Amazing you got the augers and the gear box apart while it is still in the housing. That is usually done when its out of the housing, just for simplicity.

Or a block of wood and 5lb sledgehammer.... couple of Love taps on the bearing side and it should pop right out.

I tried doing that and it doesn't seem to be moving at all. I was hitting it pretty hard.

That bearing is shot anyway. Get some heat on the inner race just before the shaft to break the rust bond, then hit hard.

If you haven't yet, it might be time to accept the bearing is going to need to be replaced and use lots of heat on it and try the hammer again.
Just saw it was suggested

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
