    Can #2 cylinder be removed with manifold in place?

    Is it possible to snatch the #2 cylinder (with studs) without removing the exhaust manifold?

    As tommy said no.... But you can pull the manifold with cylinder 2 and leave 1&3 in place. It is however nearly impossible to get the wrist pin out like that.

    No Doubt!! Any tips to pop out the pin? or do I snatch #3 or #1 cylinder to get a clean shot at it?

    -or do I quit being lazy, pull all 3 and clean up the case completely....answered myself.

    I've come across a couple pins which push right out with my finger - give it a shot, before pulling 1 and 3.

    just remove all the cylinder base bolts and pull all 3 cylinders with the exh mani attached... disassemble on the bench

    IMO you should check the other 2 pistons ring alignment pins and probably at least re-ring the other 2 so you dont spin another ring and trash another cylinder/piston

    Thank You Rich. That is exactly what I did. It helped in tackling the #2 stud that walked out during tear-down.

    There was a ton of alum in the case to clean out but the other alignment pins are still solid.

    just wondering
    Insert a paper towel below the read cage and rotate the crank. it pops out the other side with debris. repeat till clean, oil down and repeat again.
