Re: Stuck pull-pin on old Forehand rev.
I know what you are going through. Those stuck pins are definitely frustrating. You might as well face the fact that the pin is shot, so your main concern will be to save the cylinder. I had one like you described. I continued to soak it like you are doing. I grabbed the end of the pin with a vise grip to hold it, and then I turned the cylinder to break it loose. You have to make sure you pad the cylinder so as to not mar it up. Try this after a good soaking period, and if/when it breaks free, you will need to debug the rear end with a Dremel tool, again being careful not to ding up the cylinder. When tapping it out from the rear, I use a nail set because it will put an indent in the middle of the pin without mushrooming it.
Good luck, and I hope this helps!

john323 has the right idea. I soak my stubborn parts in a mixture of Kroil, wd-40, kerosene, and acetone. I have a special container for the job because acetone will eat most plastic containers. I put the parts in this solution, and forget about them for a couple of weeks. Never soak parts with the grips attached, as you probably already know.
