take water rail off.. then unbolt the hend cover of what ever cyl you want to take off, then take the bolts off the dome that is under the red cover. and there you go..
check the o rings.. if they are good you can re use them

You need to remove the 4 nuts at the base of the jug that hold the jug to the cases. The nuts on the intake side can be reached from the top with socket and a wobble extension or an extension and a u-joint. On the exhaust side, you typically have to remove the exhaust manifold to get to the base nuts. You can't get a socket on them from the top - you need to use a wrench from the side.
With those 4 nuts removed, you can slide the jug straight up and off the piston (remove the spark plug if you don't have the dome already off - this will remove the vacuum the piston will be making in the bore.)
The wrist pin is held in by a retainer ring on either side of the piston. There's a little notch on the piston that you can us to get under the retainer ring. I use a small pick to get under the retainer and pop it out. Careful, as the retainer rings like to fly when they spring out. With the retainer ring out, the wrist pin may slide right out. Sometimes they need a little persuasion - I use a long socket that's just a little smaller diameter than the pin and tap it out with a small hammer. It should take much force to remove the wrist pin. Be careful no to lose or drop the wrist bearing when the pin pops out.
Installation is just in reverse of removal.

seems pretty straight foward...
now the issue im coming across is the exhaust pipe (large red pipe)
the 4 bolts on the top are almost impossible to remove not only are they extreamly tight the inside bolts are covered by the hull and i really dont see a way to get in there....

On all my domestics, I have to wedge something between the pope and the hull and actually spread the hull to get a socket on the pipe bolts. I usually use a piece of wood or the handle of my dead-blow hammer to bend the hull over enough to get the socket on it.
If you don't have wobble extensions, I highly recommend picking up a set. They give you a little better clearance than a typical universal joint.

Tony was telling me about a Crow Split wrench for the bolts on the base of the jug
am i saying this correctly?

Crow's foot wrench.
Where are you at now on the tear down? I'm sorry I haven't stopped by, my schedule is just jam packed right now.
