Default stubborn parts

Hey crew,
got 2 parts I can't get separated. Can't get the pin out that holds the parking brake lever. Pulled the c clips and WD-40'd it up but it's not moving. I also can't get the shifter linkage to the trans apart. I got the set screw out but I can't get it to budge off of the trans shift rod. Any thoughts?
Jeff

Yeah, been going that route! On the e-brake, it's easy but I don't want to mushroom the end so that I can't get it out. Not much room on the shifter link, not to mention I don't want to damage the tranny. I might just end up visiting mr. sawzall

PB Blaster on the brake pin. Let sit for 24 hours and reapply blaster a couple of times during that period. Careful use of a 2 jaw pully remover should let you ease it out.

Pry the "ears" apart that locate the E brake handle and slip it out. Take it to your big vice or a socket and smack it. Apply heat as needed. Use a brass or aluminum punch/block to drive it out without mushrooming.

PB or your favorite penetrant like alykat says on the trans coupler. Light taps with a small hammer back and forth and back and forth, it'll let go eventually.

I had a stubborn one in my 66 that I didn't wanna ruin the ears I took an old center punch & beat it out with that, that was after mushrooming a 3/8" dia brass drift to an 3/4", I believe it was an inch shorter, aluminum just doesn't have the mass to do much, I use that first
IF I'm not worried about fires I'll stack a few fire bricks around it creating a forge & used one of my burners (small or big depending on the size) sometimes that makes it push out

Okay, I pried the e-brake out and bent everything back nice and square. I then pretty much ripped the shift rod connector off. Anyone need a 1964 tranny, drum to drum?
