Use a propane torch and gently heat the metal of the arm around the pin, but avoid heating the pin itself. This will expand the metal of the arm and the pin will be easier to punch out. I used a micrometer to check the OEM pin and found it to be a few thousandths of an inch smaller in diameter than the aftermarket replacement. The replacement would not force fit so I turned it down slightly on my lathe then placed the pin in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to shrink it. Slightly heat, again, the arm and you can drive the new pin in. Worked for me, hope this helps.
