it looks to be threaded underneath. cut the top off and drive thru?

Pry that metal bottom retaining cup off so it's just the leafs. Then you'll see a nut underneath that metal piece.

Compress and secure the leafs with a clamp or something similar since they'll expand and release tension when you remove that pin.

Then unscrew the nut while putting a set of vice grips on the top and it should break that nut loose and then the pin can be pulled through.
