I am rebuilding a chevy 350 small block and in the final stages taking out the pistons and crankshaft. While attempting to take one of the pistons out the rod bearing cap was pushed too far down on one side and is now stuck. I tried pushing the bearing up to free the rod/piston but it won’t budge. It seems like the only way to remove the bearing cap is to push the piston back into the cylinder (it is sticking out slightly) but I am worried this could crack the block and ruin it. Does anyone have any tips on how I can do this and not ruin the engine completely?
