Stubborn pin on front driveshaft of '53 Caribbean

Hello all,
The pin in the front universal joint of the driveshaft of my '53 Caribbean is being very stubborn. I took the driveshaft into a local driveshaft repair shop. They tried but eventually gave up on pressing out the pin. The pin has to come out so that the housing can be removed in order to then install a new rubber boot. I have a 20 ton press (Harbor Freight) and a rosebud oxygen/acetylene for heating. Any suggestions appreciated. I am trying to avoid bending anything as I don't have another driveshaft.
Thanks, Jerry
