    NO! find something metal that is the same diameter and get a hammer! thats the only way without cutting your linkage.

    It takes a while to get out sometimes. I used a bolt that was slightly less in diameter than the bitch pin. I then just kept hitting it and eventually it came out.

    I beat, and beat and beat some more on mine and I bent the shaft going into the tranny. Hence the tranny isnt in my car, and I had to get a new one, and new linkage.

    I actualy went on a mission for that one. I went out to the local cheap tool store (harbor freight) and picked up myself a 9 dollar air hammer. I took one of the bits and ground it on my bench grinder the same size as the pin.

    Thats the easiest way ive ever removed the drift pins out of the tranny, it now takes a whole 2 seconds for me to get the pin out. If you got a compressor, i reccomend it.
