If I recall correctly, the pin on the Corsair II  rebuild kit was a very 
small "roll pin". If yours is the same, gripping it with pliers and 
rotating it as you push it in may help; but you need to rotate it the 
correct way so that pin diameter decreases rather than increases .... if 
that makes sense :)
