American bottom brackets are quite easy to remove. Use a drift punch (or a large flathead screwdriver you don't like) and knock the cup out with a hammer (from the inside, of course). The new cups can be pressed in if you really wanted to, but it is unnecessary; use a large rubber mallet/plastic face hammer to seat the new cups in the frame.
