Default 1990 Crank Sensor replacement

I am trying to replace the Crank sensor, and I've come across a problem while removing the old one. Both bolts are out, but its stuck on a little
pivot/dowel, I tried prying it off and ended up breaking one side of the old sensor, but its still attached to the pivot. I also tried shineing up the pivor real good and spraying a bit of wd40 on it & tapping it with a mallot, it moves around the pivot, but wont come off. How can I remove this thing?

Default crank

Check tech info or a chiltons manual.
You need two people to get the harmonic balancer off.
