Clem; the plastic pieces push on the lever and pull off the same way. Inside the plastic it is molded to snap over the barbed end of the lever, just grab the little suck with pliers and pull. Good luck oldfrank :canada:
I've only been able to save 1 of 4 knobs that I have removed over the years. The new ones from Ingersoll are egg shaped and the egg is made in two pieces. The bottom half of the egg is removable giving you access to the two metal grips so the knob is completely removable and reusable. However if one is doing a restoration the egg knobs may not be desirable. They used to come in black and red, but black only now.
A claw hammer as has been mentioned along with a block of wood under the hammer along with some heat is your best bet to remove them and not totally trash them.
