dry ice on the piston and a heat gun on the sleeve worked for us

unbolt the rod from the crank, then beat on the sleeve from the bottom and drive the sleeve and piston out as a unit, a piece of hardwood works good, then lay it no the floor and hit the sleeve with a bfh which will break the sleeve and problem solved. btdt, Chuck
