you must remove the front section of the quadrant from the valve body and use a long slim punch with a 1/8 inch tip and reach down into the quadrant and push out a pin that holds the linkage to the lever shafts not a easy job but it can be done there is what they call retainers and seals to come out the trick is to get and replace the seals on the sides under the retainers to stop any oil leaks. get in touch with me jr.
