god help me lol why is this so hard?! It must be the 'pin' That I need to somehow remove though otherwise I do not see any other way of removing it, nor anything else to remove instead? Do we think this is the piece I need to remove? What about those of you whom have removed this before..is this the correct piece?That looks like what we used to refer to as a C - lock pin, which has a tapered end to aid it being punched into the hole - tapered, since is a slightly larger diameter than the hole, and compresses to go in.
Bit of a *** to drift out I would imagine since the shaft it’s in is not rigid? and tapping force is reduced.
