Yes, BFH= a technical term I learned from a friend who is a diesel mechanic.
IIRC, I started with a ball peen hammer and ended with a 4lb sledge.
I think I used a brass drift to get the pin broken free. Once you get it to move a bit, it comes out easy and can be tapped out with a punch.
I'm not sure, but I think you are only supposed to use taper pins once. It didn't matter in my application because I was rebarreling and D&T'd my FSB for set screws.
