Drive that roll pin out of the little lever in your bottom picture -- then you will be able to pull the shaft out -- be sure to line up the other lever inside and the outside lever , to a place that you can remember -- the larger lever has splines and will go in several places -- take a picture and measurements , or whatever you need to line it back up

You can remove the draft unit to get more room if needed -- put the lift arms up on a block some to get the pressure off the cylinder -- careful of your fingers , sharp edges in there

I got everything off right before I looked at your post and realized how much I messed up, I didn't mark or measure what spline it was spose to go on, so I figure I got an hour of messing around trying to get it right

Not a real big deal -- just you may have to pull the shaft a couple of times -- I would not replace the roll pin until the splined shaft was in the right place

The lever is at the notch in the quadrant , when the little "flipper" lever contacts inside (see the square headed bolt)

That should get to back on the right spline

Just set the draft unit back in and start a couple of the large bolts to hold it in place -- leave the orings out -- your gonna pull the unit again
