Not much room to do anything.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I think I used a stubby box end wrench to get that one and you have to cram your hand in as far as possible.

Getting the nut off is no big deal, a 10mm wrench will do that. The problem is pushing the wedge pin back out. I did it on a 5 speed BUT it had an extra hole in the rear housing for the reverse lock out. I supported the lever and drove the pin out with a punch and hammer.
This rear housing doesn't have that extra hole so the punch and hammer won't work. Wish I could offer some help, my guess is Nissan had a special tool ?

I think that I used a long screwdriver with my finger as a fulcrum. Not positive. It's a "brute force" operation.

If you could support the bottom lever and just loosen the nut so the threads are protected. Put very little heat where the pin goes through the lever ( so you don't take the temper out of the lever end ) and possibly lever against the nut with a prybar pivoting on the rear housing where the bearing supports are cut out.
I would try that 1st without heat just to make sure the mechanics of it all will work.

I was thinking heat, but don't want to overheat.
May have to do that as a last resort.

Also, and this is my last 2 cents, lol. You may be able to have the pin loosen if you remove it like a ball joint. Loosen the nut a turn or two, then using a punch and hammer tap the lever on the side. The pin is wedged like the stud on a ball joint and I get ball joint to pop loose by hitting the knuckle with a hammer. The vibration pops the joint loose from the knuckle...saves ribbed ball joint boots using the pickle fork. Hope that makes sense and good luck. Let us know what works.
