Here’s how: Insert the dowel pin between the claw and tap on head of hammer with another hammer until the dowel pin is secured, then pull back on the claw hammer as if pulling a nail. This method results in a cleanly removed pin that is most likely reusable. This works great on some flywheels as well.
