Default Chrysler 8.25-Center pin removal tips....

I just bought a chrysler 8.25 for the open carrier because the one in my xj is welded and its my DD, i pulled the cover drained the fluid and removed the center pin retaining bolt/ piece of broken bolt, but the pin will only come out about 3/4 inch and its stuck (no its not hitting the housing or pinion) punch and hammer/ air hammer= No dice. it will rotate but it wont budge after a certain point and i ran out of time to eff with it today, so maybe a fresh perspective is in order.

So does anyone have any "tips" for removing a stubborn differential center pin?
other than what i have tried....

Are you trying to push it in or pull it out?

I ask because if you're pushing it in it may be hitting a ring gear tooth, depending what the ratio is.
