Default Remove sector needle bearings

Iíve been tearing my steering box/column apart over the last few days and to my surprise it had already been converted to needle bearings. The sector, worm and races were shot but everything else was in decent shape

The bearings installed are Torrington bearings and seem to be in decent shape but I might want to take them out to make sure. I do want to replace the seal at least, what would be the best way to remove it? I canít tell if the housing was machined from both ends and the bearings were then pressed from each side or if they were pressed in with a spacer and everything goes in one end? I donít want to try pressing everything out and inadvertently destroy one of the bearings.
