On the the shifter boss from If you look carefully at the end of the pin, you'll see that one end is larger than the other and can only be removed in one direction. Drive out the lock pin from the bottom of the boss to the top.

I've seen a lot of cracked cases from someone driving the pin out the wrong direction.

I doubt that a drill will touch it. You will probably end up doing more damage to the case if you try to drill it out. The pin is hardened.

IF you use heat- be conservative! Aluminum weakens significantly when heated, and I certainly agree w/BGH about not trying to drill it out.

I would use PB Blaster on it, you could apply it after gently heating, even (do not breath the PBB fumes that will come off the hot metal).

I would start w/a sharp center punch in the exact center of the pin. That way, you're less likely to peen the end and make it larger. Give the pin a good, sharp rap, using a standard weight ball pein hammer- you do not need to take a drilling hammer/sledge to it.

It would be excellent insurance to use a simple block of wood to support the boss from below, so you're not hammering on an unsupported aluminum casting. It will only take a few minutes and could save you some big money, not to mention time and aggravation.

Use eye protection as a standard M.O.

Patience and a rust remover are what you need. PB blaster or ye olde coca cola; a few taps and keep at it, you'll get it. Note: no BFH and extreme care if you try to drive the pin the wrong way to shock it loose.
