Need some help with my diff lock linkage

Trying to do step 42 in the attached pdf. It's tight as shite in there and once you get the clip of there is no room for the pin to come out. It just hits up against the t-case. Any tricks?

Probably have to undo the lock nut on the rod side.

The nut just loosens up the linkage rod but doesn't effect the lever on the diff. I attached a bad sketch to show a little better.

Are you pulling the t-case? If so just disconnect the operation rod at the other end and leave it - that's what I've done. Obviously I transferred the rod to the new t-case, but I think I did that before I mated it to the trans. Memory is fuzzy.

No just replacing the linkage. Maybe that's still the way to go though. How is it connected to the operation rod? Is it a threaded rod? It's tough to see up there.
Thanks

Oh you meen at the end where the shifter knob is?

You're going up from below? Its much easier if you just pull the floor panels and tunnel. You'll be glad you did.

I know exactly what you're talking about. When I swapped my Tcase, the linkage on the donor was different, so I had to leave my existing linkage in. I ended up cutting the pin off with a hacksaw (from above) as I had a spare. When I re-assembled everything, I put the pin in from the other direction. With it in this way, it hits the Tcase when you engage the diff-lock. However, I noticed that there's quite a bit of excess length (past where the cotter key goes). After trimming off the excess, it no longer hit the Tcase. Problem solved. Hopefully this makes sense.
