bought a simple set of punches from Craftsman cost like 7-8 bucks.
There are three that really make it smooth.
The big round one with the pencil like tip is used for reinstalling them.
The one of similar size and the tiny ones (both of these are flat faces AKA no points)
First off i go at it from under neath (more elbow room)
2nd is I find the side that has the concave mouth - found it ? good.
3nd goto the opposite side of the DOJ (hub) and use the punch and hammer to easily tap them out.
4th specificaly the angle i use *initally* with the tiny punch is as steep of an angle as I can safetly go and sorta have the punch slide against the inner wall of the hole as it slowly shoves the pins out the other side.
Once its just barely started then i use the biger one to hit it nearly straight on untill its stopped up against the mouth of the DOJ (hub).
then use the tiny one again for those last few taps and its out and off comes the hub.
i have tried both the hub replaced on the tranny without the pin briefly started and without... I have somany times gotten it just one spline off that I quite intially setting the pin in the hub UNTIL i get the hub and the tranny splines lined up and then i do a couple taps to set it in the hub. Once in the hub the hardest part for me has been the "hold the hub against the tranny" while tapping the pin in at the sametime.... without the hub sliding away"just enough" to not let the pin go thru the tranny stub.
there hows that work for ya?

The two facing the rear were a pain, but my biggest problem was keeping the tool from sliding off the pin. The entire process took about 15-20 minutes.
