Rocker Shaft

I finally worked up the nerve to remove the rocker shaft from Freddie's 170 I6 in the hopes of cleaning out all the oil passages and thus quiet the "stuck lifter" clatter I have endured since taking ownership. I got the shaft assembly off and the retainer pin out of one end, but the first support "tower" seems unwilling to slide off the shaft. The shop manual simply says "slide rocker arms, springs and supports off of the shaft." What do you do if the support won't "slide off"?
Has anyone on the list dissassembled a rocker shaft and come up against this? If so, what's the solution?
