    Well timing chain change got piston stuck out of cylinder sleeve, solution?

    As I said I was changing the timing change while engine was apart and I pulled crank shaft up a little to do the switch and one piston ring came above the cylinder sleeve... I'm guessing now I have to remove head bolts to fix this? I was trying to be careful and thought they designed it so that wasn't possible but it is, any ideas?

    edit:changing not hanging

    Put a piston ring compressor on and you can tap it back gently.
    It's a tool you have to buy at a autostore,very cheap works great.

    It fell out the bottom and is still attached to crankshaft, I was putting a new timing chain on and the ring is just caught on the cylinde sleeve at the bottom.

    Get someone to help you and use a small screwdriver to work the ring back in while your buddy holds and then lowers the crank, not a one man job......

    The only safe way I can think of is remove the crank entirely and the head. Pull the piston out through the bottom. I think you will need to remove the oil jet. A risky way is to get several sets of hands and some stiff plastic tools. Use the tools to push the ring back into the groove from as many points as possible then try to push the piston back up into the hole.

    The piston won't come out from the bottom, you have to work the ring back in, no other choice

    head is off, engine is completely apart and i was begging to clean when i did that. Oil jets are already off im pretty sure, otherwise it inst possible to pull them backwards. I feel like i pushed myself back another week. I covered the engine and sprayed it with a lot of oil because it may sit a little before i get the bolts if im going that route.

    You can try a big zip tie to compress the ring then cut it off after.
