The picture doesn't look like it's drive side out...

Another thought - clean thoroughly with brake cleaner, etc. then put nuts in socket with epoxy - let epoxy harden, insert threaded rod or long bolt and pull the socket out.

I.D. socket position in relation to the crank. Ok well I guess that much is solved at least?

Be careful not to spill the epoxy anywhere else!

Wow... my first post makes top 10 on the 48 hour hit parade!

I am watching this thread very closely and am extremely appreciative for every bodies input.

To make the one question 100% clear.... The socket is Drive side out (i.e. I can connect a 1/4" drive to it.

From what I have read so far, it seems that either the extractor or slide hammer are the best two choices ,albeit both scare me since I have no experience using either... this is probably not the ideal project to cut my teeth on That said, does one option have a higher potential of success than the other?

Can I ask that you send me a link to the specific brand/tool you would recommend for either the extractor or slide hammer....

Thanks again everybody for your input..... I will reply when I decide to bite the bullet and give it a shot...

Because of experience level I would actually try the bolt and nuts with an air impact wrench method mentioned.

Wish I could take the credit on that one. LOL

Because the socket is NOT hardened an impact wrench should work nicely and wriggle it free.

Harbor freight starting at about 50 bucks.

I believe that KA9VQF disqualified the nut & bold remedy with the following:

best of luck to you, but just "AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!!" at this whole thread

did you ever hear of removing a pilot bearing with grease? you might try that. ie: fill the hole with grease and pound something in the hole. the hydraulic pressure would force it out. this works for dumb problems like this.
illustrated version:

No he was not looking carefully at the picture you posted close enough. A couple of us posted a little better edited version of your original picture. Not to mention you even cleared up which way the socket was even though you described it incorrectly.
The drive end is the ratchet side not the side that goes on the fastener BTW!
This is why I suggested based on your experience level and what you could acquire for the least amount of cost to you and ease of doing the task.

Maybe read my signature? Notice the blue?

rob there is so many reasons why this member should not try to do what is in that video...
