Need help removing the hinge pin that holds the max yoke in

Customer Question

Need help removing the hinge pin that holds the max yoke in place. Tried a machine shop and they failed. Tried a C clamp and failed. The local MK dealer suggested a punch and big hammer. Failed. Is the pin tapered?? Don't have the time to take it in and wait two weeks, need it Tuesday. Help!

There are several different models of the Riptide bow mount T/M and each has several different hinge pins. Can you be more specific as to which pin you are trying to remove?
