I use a brass drift (aka punch) to drive out all bearing races.It is softer than the surrounding steel and will not mar it up causing the new races to be hard to drive back in.I got my brass drift and bearing race drivers from Harbor Freight fairly cheap.

This is the metric bearing driver set I have and comes in a nice red case.They are also marked for the size they fit.

This set is cheaper and will probably work for you.It's SAE sizes.

I couldn't find a brass drift on the website but they are usually in the area with hammers and punches.Sometimes they are with the misc tools.The one I have is about 3/8 inch round by 8 inches long.
