At the trunnion rotation point center, there should be some type of Allen head screw, each side. Loosen and the pin should come out.

Can confirm. You can just make out the threaded hole in the pivot below the mounting plate in the pic.

Not all have set screws both sides, but will have at least one.

Also, looking at the pin there is a good likelihood of a flat on the other half still in the trunnion so ensure you back that set screw out enough.

ps. I have been fabbing replacement pins from drill rod for years since can get that in any diameter. Old stripped allan head shoulder bolts work well too once the head and threads have been cut off.
