    Default Stock rotating assembly question

    Trying to separate my stock rods/pistons and never took them apart before. The wrist pin just looks like it's a press-in fit so can I just put it in a bench vise and tap it out with a hammer and socket since I don't have a press?? I don't see any type of locks for the stock wrist pins. I just want to save the pistons to throw on the shelf for my trophy pile lol. Not planning on re-using the stuff

    Thanks

    I wouldnt hammer them out if you want to reuse anything... maybe rig up your vise to push the pins out... or take them down and have them pressed out....
    if not them hammer away, use a face shield as the pistons may shatter..


    ford only used full float pins/rods in the cobras 4v and windsor engines..
