    I used needle nose pliers to get mine out, your going to want to put new c-clips in anyway.

    The pins themselves are hard to get out if they're old, I would suggest come kind of c clamp rigged up.

    Just pry it out of there with a pick. Heres a tip when installing them.....pinch the clip closed and hold it like that for a few seconds. Then put it in. It will go in a lot easier. Face the ends up or down.

    To get the pin out......use a deep well socket thats just a tad smaller. Then tap on it and the pin will come out easily.
    Works fot me! Dont hit the skirt of the piston while tapping the socket when its inside the piston.

    I use a length of threaded rod some washers and nuts along with sockets. Use a socket slightly smaller than the pin on one und of the pin. Use a long large socket, I use one designed for oxygen sensors on the othe side off the pin. Put the rod through these sockets and pin. Add washers and nuts tighten the nuts and the pin will be pushed out into the large socket.

    Does this permenantly reduce the spring tension in the clip?

    I just ease the clips in with a small screwdriver levered into the extraction hollow. For the first clip on each piston I insert the wrist pin and use the pin as a backer to prevent the ring from traveling any deeper than it should.
