That lock bolt is a round shaft with a tapered flat spot on one side. It mates with a flat spot on the transverse link and wedges the two together. The more you tighten the nut, the more it pulls the tapers tight. The best method I have found is to loosen the nut a couple turns. Then using a drift on the nut, or a second hammer as a drift and drive it strait up. That is not a great method and usually damages the lock bolt, which I couldn’t find at Rock Auto.
“English Racer” bicycles used to use a tapered pin like that on the pedal arms.
Hopefully someone has a better method.

I almost got the impression that your lock bolt has a threaded area on the top side. If that is the case, putting a nut on that and tightening it would pull the tapered pin out. I don’t remember seeing one like that.
