Default Wico XH Magneto Overhaul Help

My 1931 Farmall has a Wico XH magneto on it. Hard to start and running rough last couple of months. I want to do a full overhaul on the magneto, but last time I tried to take it apart, it was not clear to me how to get the bearings out

I also do not know if this is one whose magnets will be damaged by being out of their pole-pieces.

Can anyone point me to information on the XH? I bought Yerigan's book, and it covers almost every mag BUT this one.

Thanks!

I don't know how to remove your bearings, I'm sorry but I have read enough information on this site that if magnets are removed it certainly is best to put "keepers" on them to help retain their magnetism. If they are a bit weak it sure is helpful to have them re-charged as this helps with its operation a lot.
