Hiller Bearing-help!

Is this bearing serviceable? How do I remove it? It has what appears to be CFI stamped on it and in another location B59 is embossed on it. Thanks

Won't know until bearing is removed, cleaned up, and inspected.
How do I remove it?
Flat nosed long punch. From back side, slide punch along the inside of the hub until it contacts the bearing or bearing race. Tap punch with hammer. Move punch to opposite side of bearing or bearing race, tap again. Probably have to work around the bearing or bearing race a couple of times.

Some hubs have two notches on opposite sides for bearing removal.

The big part is a casting. The bearing is steel. Of course it can come out. Be careful as not to damage it while removing it. Do as Eugene says.
