    Pull the engine with the SL attached and then remove it, thats how I did it...otherwise just pound the shit out of it with a 8mm punch until it comes out.

    Once the pin is out, it goes back in relitivly easy, even with a brand new pin. I would not use a bolt because if the bolt has ANY slack in it, it can interfeir with shifting.


    At least with Integra's and Del sol's, you can remove the engine without taking off that part of the shift linkage, just do every other point (if your pulling the engine of course). It's much easier to do out of the car
