Just for the record, I just changed the clutch while off the road for the winter and I too struggled with the spigot bearing - tried everything, grease, levers, 3 types of seal puller, threaded rod with washers - nothing worked, just destroyed the bearing an left the shell still unmoved in its bore. Until, I bought this off Amazon: £11.49 for a set of 5 extractors 9 - 23mm. 30 seconds, done!!! Honestly, anyone referring to this in future, don`t waste your time, if it won`t come out easily just get one of these.
