    Think it needs a little WD40 around each end of the pin then left to soak overnight then a copper & hide hammer with punch as suggested.

    I would not advise drilling out the pin because you run the risk of damage to the shaft or gear. That being siad, if you do have to drill it out try a cobalt drill.
