I would just replace the seals. They are not that expensive.

If you have a couple days just order the bearing kit from Go Fasters. In my experience it was quite a bit cheaper than buying individual bearings from a bearing shop.
ok thanks, as as you saidd about the price, bike shops around my area are getting quite expensive lately, next time i will learn my lesson, and shop around first,

So the inner races and balls blew out and you've still got an outer race stuck in there?

Those bearings musta really been shot...

I assume you can't get a drift to bite on anything to drive the race out from the opposite side?

Maybe get in there with a Dremel and grind some flats on the inside of the race so you've got something to hook your drift on?

I don't think you can get it hot enough to "fook" it up with a hot air gun. The paint would bubble before you did any damage to the alu hub. Make sure you're applying heat to the hub, NOT the race. Try dosing it with some penetrating oil too.
