What are you guys using to grip the top of the sleeve to remove if it doesn't pop out. I heated it up to about 275 deg. No go. Don't want to scar the top of the sleeve using a pliers . Never had one stick like this before. Any help please.

Put a zip tie through the exhaust port and turn the engine over til it pops up. Then carefully with a flat head screw driver pry it straight up keeping the screwdriver flat under the flange. Leave the fit on the sleeve to case tight. Don't sand it.

Zip tie worked. Had to work up to the largest size Zip tie before it popped.
Thanks

Another way to remove the sleeve is to use the old brass washer from a glow plug.

When you go to put it back together use some WD 40 on the sleeve and rotate it up and in the block to get it to slide in better.

I use two tooth picks in the exhaust port. It generally breaks them in half, but almost always brings the cylinder up enough to pull it out by hand or going under the flange with a screwdriver.

I clean up the outside of the sleeves with scotch brite wheel. Buffs it up nicely and wont bind up. Scotch bright pads will do the the same thing.

Rather than buff the sleeve ,,better to work the sleeve in and out of the case with wd40 or similar product,more like lapping.
