Gear Rod removal

Could anyone tell me if they have had problems removing the 2 gear rods with balljoints situated on top of the gearbox, from a GTV twinspark?

I have tried a couple of tools , puller and fork, and have succeeded in bending the rod which has the smallest ball joint.
Im getting desperate!

Only a yr and 10 days too late ollie.

Just done this myself in the last day or two, you need a 10mm spanner and squeeze it below rubber at top off ball joint, as there is a hidden 10mm nut there and then loosen the nut at the end of the ball joint 13mm i seem to remember.
