How can I get this bearing off?

Trying to fix my Vortech and I need to get to the bad bearing but first I need to pull a healthy bearing off the shaft because it's an obstruction (see the arrow).

I have gear pullers but they will only grasp the outer ring of the bearing so instead of pulling it off they'll tear it apart and still leave the inner ring on the shaft. There's nothing wrong with this bearing so I'd rather not do that

Bought a bearing separator today but its way too big to get in that space. I need something that will cradle the back of the bearing while I pull it. Any ideas?

I have made special pullers for applications like this. I don't think there is a universal tool that will work for that. I suspect your best bet is to replace that bearing along with whatever else you planed on doing.
