Trying to remove my rear brake lever and I can't get the freakin' pin out that holds it to the master cylinder. I removed the cotter pin and it wouldn't budge. Sprayed some pentrating oil in there and it won't budge. Used a flat blade screwridver to push from behind and.............you guessed it, it won't budge.
Can someone help a fella' out here before I throw something heavy and expensive?
As always thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reply!
Man that is crazy. How is a fella' supposed to get behind there to whack it with a hammer and punch without removing the radiator? It's madness I tell you LOL!

You can use channel locks and push the end of the pin in. I wouldn't do it if the lever was powdered though. Just put the longer side of the channel locks on the pin and the short side on the lever (not the other side of the pin).
