Yes, getting that inner bearing race off the main drive gear can be tough. I have found a couple of hardened steel rollers, in fact carefully chosen screwdriver shanks, can be clamped up in a vice so they bear on the bushing. Some heat and tightening the vice often starts the bushing so you can then get a puller under it. Good luck.
