Roper-Whitney # 68 Punch

I'm refurbishing an old Roper foot operated punch and have hit a
roadblock. It's a model 68 (same as your model 58, but with a 24"
throat). I need to remove the two gibbs that hold the ram against the
backplate, but I can't get them to budge. The bolts are out, and I've
half heartedly tried to knock one of the locating dowels out with a
pin punch, to no avail. I really don't want to hurt this nice old
machine, but I've got to get those gibbs off. What is the right way
to accomplish this?
