strip it, heat the case up in an oven and whack it on some wood. the
bearing should fall out or may need a little push

I just stripped my engine down a few weeks ago, this is what I did. Remove the head, piston, liner, carb and crank. Wipe the case out good, place in an oven (I used the toaster over) set at 350 deg for about 10-15 minutes. When you take it out, a good tap will cause the rear bearing to fall out and a slight push from behind with a wood dowel or handle of a wooden spoon will pop the front bearing right out.

here's another one.
While specific to the OS 50, the principles are the same.

Don't use the torch. Use your oven instead. 250 - 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. Bearings fall right out, no chance of screwing up the crankcase as is possible with a torch.

Here's yet another "how to" link:
