I think most just have a pin holding them on. A good whack or two with a punch took mine out.

Back the shaft with a heavy hammer or body block and use a pin punch to drive the pin inside the shaft. Then slide the handle off. Get a helper, this requires three hands.

Yep, it's a solid pin...Ford was too cheap to even use a spring pin, lol. I'm not the "rapping kind" so I use a small C-clamp and a machine screw of slightly smaller diameter to push the pin inward, where it'll fall into the tube and out the bottom. Somebody makes a BILLET handle but I wish somebody would make one that looked just like the original, but in cast aluminum.
