Master Cylinder Removal

1969 172K, anyone have a trick for removing the cotter pin from the lower clevis holding the master cylinder in? I can either touch it or see it, but not at the same time.
Don't want to remove the rudder pedal bar, but if that is the only option...
Thanks in advance.

    Hi and here's a comment from our A&P:

    Well,

    The guys with all the funky tools, the years of learning tricks, and tuning their fine dexterity make the big bucks for a reason-

    ;-)

    This might be one to have your mechanic deal with, because if you think getting it out is a hassle, just wait until you go to put it back together!
