shaft should push back far enough to pull it forward again to engage with the engines output shaft.

Why yours won't move back I can't say.

When I remove a motor I disconnect the shaft and push it back.

When refitting I pull it forward with a long allen key held in a pair of vice grips slipped into the retention bolt hole.

It is possible to push the shaft too far back to the point it disengages with the final drive . At this point it will normally rotate so that you can find the mesh and pull the shaft forward.

It's just being stubborn.

That extractor should work.

I use this type. I don't use a rattle gun - I don't own one. I just use a ratchet.

Do you mean that the pedal shaft slides across when you try to fit the pedal?

If you install the pinch bolt from the wrong side and place a thin piece of steel in the pinch gap the bolt will open the spline area when tightened. This will help the pedal go on easier.
