replace a 560 tensioner slipper

Just replaced the chain, gears, and upper guides on 90 560sel 230K. Can you slip the slipper off without pulling the pivot pin? Is the bottom captiv, or will it pull off ok? Then how do you get the new one on?

The threads in the pin must be larger than the guide pins. I have the cover screw removed and the same 10M bolt is too small. 13M seems too big.

Do you get it out the same way? what size thread/bolt is the bolt needed to pull it? By the way, wear is not too bad for 230K. Worst wear is on the slipper.
