The bearings are pressed in. Easiest way to get them out without the proper
puller is to get some all thread and nuts, fix them in the axle housing so
they hold out the flange assembly (but with enough thread so you can get a
good start on the axle nut), and screw in the nut with an impact wrench. It
will pull the axle out. Sorry, I don't have a picture since what I described
is easy to see, but hard to say.

hi All,
I am replacing the thrust washers on my "72 MGB. Got the hub off along with
the backplate, and now need to slide the axle out a short bit. What is the
secret to getting it to slide out? Thanks in advance for any help.
