new vaquero firing pin replacement

anyone replaced firing pin in new vaquero    looks like you drive out slanted pin that holds it in place    then with punch drive out pin and pin housing by placing punch on rear of firing pin and drive it forward     i see all kinds of problems on installing the new housing spring and pin  looks like you would  mark the pistol frame and the firing pin housing so you would have a chance to line up the housing with the frame so you could reinstall the cross pin that holds it in place but thats a guess      sp if anyone has done it tell me what you did and what kind of problems could i have

I've taken a bunch of them out using the same method described by Larsen. I have a couple of caliber specific sizes of brass rods that I  place in the barrel to drive the bushing back in place.
