Steering head bearing races

Does anybody here have any experience in the removal of steering head races? I'm inclined to believe that they're just pressed in and not brazed or welded. What should I be doing here? A dowel and a BFH? Any suggestions?

they're just pressed in, and you don't really need all that much force, a couple taps will loosen them up and they push in by hand. at least on my puch.

Thanks Wiffleball. This is what I thought. I can't see any weld or brazing and didn't want to distort it with heat. I'll give them a few whacks tomorrow and see what happens. I just hope that what I have to replace them with fits.
