Exclamation Wrist Pin Removal???

How the hell do you remove the wrist pins, ive got the c-clips undone but cant really figure out how to get the wrist pins out, buy the way you have to remove the pistons to pull the block apart, i hate to say it but it took me about 5 mins to realize it.

find a socket to fit in there good and give it a little hit with a rubber mallet or something, sometimes they can be a little pressed in there

I just went through the same problem, I used a small steel rod that I picked up at Ace Hardware and a hammer.
