Best way to remove those pins.
The frame teardown was uneventfull until the rockshaft.
The spring pin would not move at all so I used the same method as the steering wheel pin removal. I cleaned one side of the center of the spring pin with a drill bit that would just fit. One end closed form my hammer attempt the first time around. I clipped a 1/8 welding rod and cleaned off the flux. Inserted the rod into the pin as far as it
would go. Hooked up the lead to the rod and the ground clamp to a clean spot on the rockshaft arm. About 140 amps Ac with the camera ready this time. The rod went to bright red in about 15 to 20 seconds. Pulled the rod out and hit the pin with a punch held by vise grips. It moved now on the very first hit and a few more and the pin was out.
I used a flat brass punch to drive the shaft toward the frame to free the arm. Between the frame rails the lift yoke has a set screw on a key in the shaft. Loosen it and drive the yoke off to remove the rockshaft. Note the keyway groove on the frame rail to remove.
The rest of the parts removed withe no trouble. I will start prepping and painting to return it to a roller to continue the buildup.
