Don't forget to get the roll punch (perfect cylinder shaft and completly flat tip) and not a taiperd (taipering shaft and cone tip) or you'll be hating life! If she doesnt come out fairly easy double check to make sure you are pounding the right end of the pin and its plenty lubed up They really do just slip on out with the proper punch and tap of the BFH
It's not a special punch. It is a standard 3/16" punch. You can look for the equivalent size in metric as well. There are special pin punches that have a relief at the end as well. You should use the right tool for this job though. It will save hours of anguish if you bugger the pin trying to use something else.

It's also a very good idea to replace that roll pin EVERY time you change half shafts. boing

using a non-tapered end punch can save you from Rollpin Hell.
If somebody will show me how to insert the rollpin picture that I uploaded here I'll show you one that took a whopppping 6 hours to remove.
