Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. First determine if you have a tapered or straight king pin and if there is a threaded retaining nut on one side or if you have the style that has a retaining pin through the spindle to hold the pin. If a retaining pin loosen the nut and use an air chisel to push the retaining pin out with the nut flush with the end of threads to prevent excessive mushrooming. When the pin is siezed you will need to use a press as the recommended way to remove it. Otherwise you will need to use heat, a big sledge hammer or cut the pin out which too much heat is not recommended. Copy and paste these links in your browser for some videos on the procedure. Let me know if you need more help

Thanks for the update. It depends on if yours is threaded on the smaller side. You will be able to tell. If threaded you push on the threaded side to remove. If unthreaded one side will be narrower and you push on the narower side of the pin. Copy and paste this link in your browser to help identify the pins you have.
