The top one is pretty straight forward. The bottom one you have to press the stem out off the bottom clamp to get off.

To get the races out of the frame warm the frame with a butane torch and drive them out with a big punch.

A neat trick I use at work to get pressed-fit races out easily is to run a bead of weld inside the race. When the weld cools, it contracts and the race will fall right out.
