How do I remove the pedals from the hogs head? Drill out the dowel? I tried to search for old threads that talked about it, for some reason it would not pull anything up.
They can be stubborn, see this Mike Bender video:
Brake and reverse pedals slip out after removing the band adjusting nut.
To remove the low pedal you need to drill out the cam which pinned to the shaft inside the hogshead.
