    before you really start to whack the spindle, some of them are tapered or have a "washer" on the drive side try hitting it form the non drive side also try a little wd-40 or something else like it, then when you get that out if you dont have a bearing press your gonna have to beat the bearings out, either be careful or if your replaceing them anyways just beat the hell out of em just to hit the fame too much

    tried to drive it out. wood breaks apart. can't find a bolt to thread inside- thread pitch odd.
    and I'm affraid of tearing up the splines.
    Thanks for any advice.

    Does the spindle spin freely?

    I got it. used an old screw drive handle as a pad. 1 of the "sealed bearing" came out with the spline. So, I would guess, The bearing will have to be pressed onto the spline and 1 pressed into the bb. then the spline and bearing into the other bearing and bb.

    your probably gonna want another BB the spindle is supposed to be a tolerance fit (able to slide right in and out) i would guess if your spindle was stuck in the bearings that the bearings are not in the best shape you can usually find a new BB for less than 30bucks
