I found this thread earlier today because I was having trouble getting the pedal crank pin out. I ended up putting a block of wood on the ground, stuck a metal pipe over the pin between the pedal crank and block of wood and hammered it down towards the ground. The pipe braced the pedal shaft so it wouldn't bend. I also had to heat the area with a torch for a few seconds.
Then I took photos of the rest of the removal to go along with the write up above. I just thought photos might help someone reading this in the future. No further questions.
