I pulled one by center punching the pin, drilling a hole, threading a self tapping screw into the pin, then pulled on the screw head with pliers. Just prior to pulling on the screw head, I applied some heat to the housing to help expand the pin hole just a bit. Made a new pin from some rod stock I had. Takes a lot of patience to get this done. If you can get the pin punched exactly dead center, guess you might be able to just drill the pin out kind of like drilling out a broken head bolt.
Here's a link where I got the idea:https://conductorjonz.wordpress.com/201 ... p-day-two/
