    pb blaster let it soak, then use a punch and bfh and knock it through

    edit: wait, its stuck in the perch or stuck in the springs?

    I voted for my own recommendation! :D

    PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench the sucker! Wait a bit, then utilizing a vice grip try to move the bolt side to side. Persuade it with a BFH if need be. If a no-go, then air chisel it off, drill it out. You have the depth since you have a sister 44 hangin' around, so by and by the drill bit will collapse the bolt in on itself and the sucker will come out. Just remember to use WD40/PB/LW or motor oil to lube it, so it stays cool.

    Best wishes. Exercise patience and remain stead fast in resolve. It'll come out. Oh, and don't cuss at it. Sweet talk it! :bow:

    How about a compromise?

    I would pb the snot out of it, let it soak a while then heat it good with the propane torch. Grab the nut with your vice grips and yank...:weld:

    Did you try smacking the perch with a BFH? Dont pussy foot around with it. If you have the cast perches you can hit them way hard and not hurt them. The shock of the vibes through the perch should knock it loose.

    Oh and shoot it with PB Blaster before you start.

    So sorry to hear that. The heating prolly weakend the pin and increased the stress shear. Like I said to you before, mark your drill bit and start drilling as close to the diameter as possible. Use WD40 or motor oil to lube. When you get down far enough, the pin will collapse on itself and should extract around the drill bit. Just use patience and it'll be out in 10 minutes or less. Wish I was there to help ya!
