Welcome to CF!
Tricks? Well.....a gear puller to get the pitman arm off of the steering box shaft. Use some penetrating oil too. Sometimes they need a little help to break 'em loose. Light taps from a brass head hammer will helppersuade it to move.
Hope this helps!

Oh ya,.....take the pitman arm retaining/clamping bolt all the way out.
