I am pretty sure you turn it out, the chrome shaft should turn out. That is how the cylinders on my Johnson loader are like and then the cylinder on my power angle plow looks identical. I would probably try that.
Remove the snap ring, buy a pair of heavy duty snap ring pliyers with interchangeable ends. Clamp the cylinder in a vise, not on the tube as you will bend it. Put a bolt through the clevis holes and clamp the bolt. Pull on the rod until it pops out. If there is rust on the first inch inside the tube it will be difficult. Put towels over the fittings because oil will be ejected when you pull.
It is an easy process if you have the snap ring pliyers. You may have to push the rod in and pull hard like a battering ram to get the rod out.
