May need to "make" some special tools to split the case. You don't want to just start prying and beating.

Beating on the ends of the crank is my method.  Proceed from hard plastic to brass to steel depending on results.

The bearings are usually a light press fit in the crank and they will stay in the case.

Don't be thumping on it with a BFH .Heat the bearing pocket up on one side with a heat gun then just tap loose the bearing still attached to the crankshaft .Do likewise on the other side .If you are bound determined to thump it use a dead blow or wooden mallet ,no BFH now .

FWIW a flywheel puller doesn't cost that much---E-bay .
