Removing caster on belt driven walkbehind

I'm trying to remove the front caster on my belt walk behind. I remove the pin on the top and I tap it down and it gets stuck just below the lip of the top. Any suggestions?

It's probably mushroomed from hitting it like that,put it back all the way up and grind around the top top even it out

Chill cullen meister, i think you have mushroomed it also. You need to grind a bit around the top and it will then drop. I'll check it out friday....

Clean off all the grease and take either a die-grinder or a 4 1/2" grinder and take the bevel off the top of the shaft,you might have to remove quite a bit to do it,but it should fall right out then.A BFH will gouge up the bushing,drive it out too or even split it if it is reallymushroomed at the top.
