........from the transmission shaft? I find lots of information on replacing it, but not removing it. I'm guessing a long punch and strike on one side, turning it, then push out with the punch?

I want to replace the bushing and the soft plug before I rivet the shaft to the clutch push ring assembly.

Just push it out toward the bushing- the plug and bushing will come out together from the bushing end. You can pound it out with a large round punch or press it out with the same or just about anything hard that will fit thru the square hole.
