Removing bearing seat

I need to get the outer bearing ring out of the end of this tube without damaging the coating on the tube
I can't get in with a punch 😳 a hacksaw won't touch it 😩 I am thinking Dremel unless anyone has any ideas👍
It's off my caravan motor mover Click image for larger version

No the tube is seated out and the outer bearing is flush with tube

How about an internal bearing puller, bring it over one day next week & we'll have a go.

Tack weld a piece of steel with a hole in it across the bearing & use a bolt to pull it out through a big socket or something similar on the end of the shaft

It's some sort of coating to grip the tyre quite brittle as well

have you got a welder?
A good bead of weld around the inside of the race when cooled will make it shrink and it will probably drop out.
I do this on wheel bearing outer races all the time, much less effort than the alternatives. especially on big double rollers.

either run a short electric or mig weld around the bearing race and it will damn near drop out. Dont burn your fingers when you pick it up.
