Post shifter on an NP435, how to get it out??

I fought a shifter on np435 for about an hour, I couldn't figure out how to get it out. Can some one gimme the steps to removing it? Sorry if this is a newbie question but I have always worked on jeeps and haven't had experience with these.

I made a "tool" for the job. I use a 1x4x24" long piece of wood with a hole cut in the middle. Slip the tool over the shifter, push down and turn to the left. I know, it sounds dumb but, hey, it worked for me and I've used it several times.

And, like PTO Dave said, make sure it's in neutral.

Good luck!

I open up channel locks so they still ride on top but near the bottom of that collar and just press down on the channel locks and turn.
