It took 6 tons of pressure to press the new bearings in (yes, I have a gauge on the ram). If your pulley is so wallered out (industry term) that a new bearing walks out, it should be replaced.
The pulley is a simple formed steel item. The bearing simply presses into the center of said formed steel. There should be no lateral preload on the bearing, as the pulley is shoulder less, and should be uniform unless it is indeed worn out.
Y'all make it seem so complex when it's a simple issue.
