pilot bearing removal

I have a 4cyl 6 speed wrangler. I am trying to replace the pilot bearing. I have the flywheel removed and I am having trouble getting the pilot bearing out of the flywheel. I managed to destruct the old bearing and the only part left is the race. Does anyone know how to get it out? Does it come out the front or back There is a large plate on the backside.

It should be able to be pressed/driven out.

Besides replacing the pilot bearing, what else are you doing? New clutch system? What do you plan to do as far as the flywheel goes? Are you going to have the flywheel refaced at a machine shop, or are you going to put in a new one? If new, then don't worry about the old one. If refacing, then you likely need a puller. Honestly, I thought the bearing race was accessible from both sides of the flywheel and could be easily driven out.

Since you say 6-speed Wrangler, and I have nothing else to go by though, is this a YJ we're talking about? Or what? You have nothing in your profile to direct me further in being able to help you out on this.

Wrangler 4.0 the pilot bearing is installed in the back of the crank.

Wrangler 2.5 (4 cyl YJ) the pilot bearing is installed in the flywheel.

It's a horse of a different color. If for some reason the configuration of the OPs flywheel doesn't allow access to the pilot bearing from both sides of the removed flywheel, then blind hole puller will do it, like rental for deposit from Vatozone, O'Really's etc. Not sure what OP has though, it's a mystery at this point, awaiting further information, maybe even some photos.

Came for the bread shenanigans, stayed for the 6-speed answer.

With your help I will resist the urge to buy a chrome grill guard for yet another day.

I'm also curious about this 6 speed thing...are you sure your YJ has a 6spd?

I'm thinking OP may not have a YJ, but a TJ. I don't mind helping Wrangler owners of any ilk figure out their issues if I can. Hope we do hear back from OP sometime, as open-ended threads are not helpful to others searching for answers. Sometimes though, we never hear back from Newbs with interesting concerns.
As I know it, in the TJ series, behind the 2.4L L4 there was an option for the 6 speed NSG370 manual transmission but only in like the 2005/6 series, also the NV1500 with which I have no experience. Prior to that behind the 2.5 TJ it was the AX 5 that we all know. Since the NSG370 was also put behind the 6 cylinder, it must have been very nice to get a 4 cyl with that transmission that is known to be able to handle a lot more torque than the other 4 cylinder transmissions.
This 6-speed though is like the 6 speed behind the Gen 2 Tacomas where only the 6th gear is an overdrive. Direct drive is not until you get to 5th, so if you're driving around in 4th, you're still in a reduction gearing so to speak. Gen 3 Tacoma 6 speeds though went back to direct drive in 4th, and the 5th/6th are both overdriven gears.
So, depending on bell housing, the NSG 370 can go behind the 4.0, as well as the 3.8L V6, and apparently, the 2.4 4 cylinder as well.

Waiting on OP.......
