Brake and clutch pedal removal help, 56 f100

Can someone please tell me how to remove the shaft from the pedal assembly on my 56 f100? I have a hanging pedal assembly that I am installing and I can't quite figure out how to remove the shaft that holds the pedals in place. It appears to me that there might be a roll pin on the clutch end that needs to come out in order to slide the shaft out, am I right? Thanks in advance for the help.

remove pedal bolt/pedal and then there's a roll pin......i can't remember the order though and my shaft had to come out the clutch arm side (the trans was in the way).

I'm having issues removing my clutch pedal as well. The above diagram is similar to the one in my shop manual but my locking pin nut is on top.
I guess the question I have, is do I just pound the locking pin out or am I missing something in getting the pedal to release?

If I pound out, do I push it up from the bottom?
You should have seen it before I cleaned it up.

You appear to have a threaded pin. Or at least the cap on the pin is threaded. I'd unscrew it if you can. Then if the pin doesn't come out with it beat it out with a punch. Last resort, drill.

Thanks, That's kind of what I figured. Since I'm new to all this, I'm hoping to avoid too many expensive bonehead moves when I can.

Yeah, I think there have been several threads on this topic. It's not really a hobby, it's more like a sickness and I have no desire to recover from this one.
