If you show the surface of the break, I could tell if the metal of the tool is proper. If it is a rough surface, like cast iron, that isn't correct. You see that a lot in cheap Chinese tools. It should look more like torn Play Dough, which would be tough steel.

I didn't have any trouble getting my pins out with a bolt, NUT, and washers. It sounds like you are turning the bolt. You should hold the bolt and turn a nut down against the washers to pull the pin straight out. That will prevent the bolt from breaking in torsion. Best to try to find a grade 8 bolt at the hardware store. Grease the nut and washers. Only a sissy man would call a mobile mechanic. Tough up and screw up like me, just don't tell your woman about your mistakes.
