Swap pipes on Clutch Master Cylinder?

I am still trying to get my clutch master cylinder to work on L series 45 52 plate (UK right hand drive). It so happens I have a brand new Delphi master for a "left hand drive" car (shorter pipe) and was going to use the internal parts to make my master cylinder work, but wonder whether I can just swap the pipes by removing the pin that seems to hold the pipe union to the master cylinder.

Does anyone know if I hammer the pin out of the union to take the pipe off whether I can swap the pipes? Will they go back on OK?

i have managed to easily swap the pipes on a clutch master cylinder by taking out the split pin, used a hammer and unused pop rivet to drive out the pin securing the pipe union to the master cylinder, and swapped the pipes. While the pipes were off, I also swapped the seal (rubber O ring) between the pipe and clutch master so that the new seal will be on the car.
