So I have a good accelerator rod assembly but I would like to replace the bushings. I cant get the bloody thing apart. I've driven out the pin at the linkage end, I was told that I should just be able to drive the rod out of the little housing. Not budging. Do I need to apply heat? I have sprayed plenty of Kroil , but to no avail. So whats the way to get it apart?

Your help greatly appreciated, thanks, Tinkerman the Frustrated

Based on what I've read, you need to install it in your car, wait for a dark, rainy night and when you are driving in a very desolate area the roll pin will break and the whole thing will come apart leaving you stranded!

Seriously, I thought it was just the one roll pin, but I haven't checked in a while. I have a couple torn down in the garage I can take a look at this evening if you don't get a response before then.
