This is asked so many times that it should be here. I use a 3/16" tool to drive out the roll pins, Craftsman p/n 42885WF if you buy it at Sears.
Knock the pin OUT from the non-bevelled hole side; knock the new pin IN from the bevelled hole side. If it doesn't go in and only 1/2 hole is open, you're 180 degrees out of correct position. Pull the DOJ off and rotate it 1/2 turn and slide it back on the stub axle; the pin will now go in easily.

3/16" or 5mm pin punch, or Philips screwdriver with a 3/16" shaft or less
