Removing shift lever pin

I need to remove the column shift lever from a 78 F-150 steering column. Is it held in place only by the spring pin (which is quite visible at the stalk of the lever) and does this come out with encouragement from a hammer and punch? I've tapped on it pretty good without any noticeable movement and don't want to do any damage if there is some other secret to getting them out.

You need the correct size punch (or pin punch) to chase the roll pin out of the shift collar.

Ah, is this an opportunity to buy a new tool? Is there actually something called a "roll pin punch", and do they come in assorted sizes? (I must say this is the first column shift lever I've ever had to remove to it's new ground for me.)

What about just using a small bolt that is small enough to slip inside the hole on the shift lever but not inside the roll pin itself?

Why yes... ...Step right up here in the truck and let me show you...

It is a regular drift punch with a *** on the end to hold it in alignment with the roll pin so you won't gouge any material. Any type of roung punch will work as long as it is not tapered. It needs to drive the pin completely out without enlarging the hole.
