Removing uflex steering cylinder

I got all the bolts off pretty easy - how do I get the end caps to come off? Is this just a long through bolt? Do I need one of those pullers to pop it off?

Thanks for the reply. I'll order - are the caps easy enough to change/remove while the boat is in the water? Or should I pull the entire assembly and put it on a bench to replace the end caps?

I found good - used units on eBay for $200. Should I just buy one and swap the entire thing rated than trying to break the cap loose? Is this a repair I can do in the water?
