Yeah, it'll separate, you'll probably have to take it out and heat it up a little bit..throw in a shitload of WD..
Then afterwards drill a new hole and throw in a coathanger, hehe better than new.

I had to put mine in a vice and take a hammer and a punch to free the bitch up

ooooh, if you have auto you are gonna need to extend your linkage...I just happen to have one that MIGHT work for ya..yours is a 69 so it might not..

Or you could cut and extend it yourself.

put a box end wrench over the male end so that it just catches on the outer area, then take a pneumatic hammer tothe wrench.. it'll come righ toff
