Probably going to need some help with this one. Removed the weird sized allen bolts and locking bolts on the side. Now what?

Thanks everyone.

with mine the spindle can now be carefully tapped out (i used a soft copper mallet) it might take a bearing with it. If not the bearings can now be tapped out the shell with a hammer and drift. the bearings are common circlip variety so SKF, FAG etc from local supplier.

the old hammer method works well, but if you can get your hands on one of these, even better

Thanks all, I got it out with a hammer, and then used a headset cup remover.
