I'd appreciate all the help i can get.
Try beating it out from the other end if you still can't get it out then de-grease everything very well and heat up the metal around the pin this will cause it to expand a little then hit the pin with a hammer. Try heating the metal for about 15 minutes, be sure to spread the heat so don't focus the torch on one area.
