Help with Toilette!!

I have a Thetford Model 42070 upper portion is porcelain. I wanted to replace the seal and Waste Ball Valve. I have successfully taken the toilette apart top from bottom but now I cannot seem to get the ball valve removed from the waste ball drive arm and the pedal has a large spring that I am afrain of removing. I tried to remove the waste ball valve by gently prying on the side attached to the waste ball drive but was afraid of breaking something. Is there more dismanteling that I have to do. I have some pictures.

The pedal pulls off and yes it is a devil to pull it off. Pulled ours off and lubed the water valve in the back with silicone paste. Works better than when it was new. Suggest you get the silicone paste and do the same. BTW, use the silicone paste on the seal and ball. Also, take pictures before disassembling the water valve.

Thanks. Do you have to remove the spring tail that is tucked inside of the pedal with needle nose pliers and then the pedal comes off? The spring seems very heavy and worried about getting the spring tail tucked back into the pedal. If you have move details for a novice I would appreciate it. Thanks again.

I just now came upon this. So I thought I would share this for the next person that has to remove the pedal.

I didn't remove the spring, but you do have to hook the tail back on the pedal when you put the pedal back on. Just make sure you use the silicone paste to lube everything that turns or rotates.
