Okay gang, need your help once again. My brake pedal is sticking and I need to remove the pedals and the shaft they ride on. I initially thought it was the master cylinder (it was indeed corroded, so I’m glad I went through the hassle), but as it turns out it’s just that the pedal shaft is so covered in greasy goo (and probably some rust as well) that the pedal is all but glued to the shaft.

The manual is pretty vague about this process, it simply says to remove the four pins that hold the pedals and shaft in place. Therein lies the rub: the same goo that’s keeping the brake pedal from returning is also holding the pins in place. There’s not enough room to swing a hammer in there, and I have not had any luck using vise grips to pull them out. I was able to pull the one that acts as a “stop” for the brake pedal, but both the pins at the clutch pedal and the one in the far end of the shaft won’t budge. Please please please let me know if there’s a way to get them out that I’m missing. Thanks as always for your expertise!

Cheers,
-Trogs
