propane torch and a $1.00 of dry ice
and some good lobster oven mitts
hold torch on upper end of connecting rod...
as far up as you can get without torching the pin itself
piston hanging over the edge of the table
with the other hand hold a piece of dry ice against the end of the pin
should fall out...so have something below it for the pin to fall on/in

at least i heard this works

I don't think that works or atleast works as well as it sounds. Someone tried that(with acetylene torch); and I ended up with a burnt set of rods and pistons.

Easiest is a press. The correct equipment is the best but an assortment of sockets would work.

I'm inferring propane is not hot enough. When I had to get my tie-rods taken off, a propane torch couldn't heat it up enough(had the torch on there for 15minutes). Took it to a shop where they use a acetylene torch to get it red hot, and was finally able to break it loose.

I spent $20 to have the pins pressed out of my pm6s and back in on my new set of p29s.

you absolutely could be right
but i think the dry ice is cold enough (-178°F) to make up for it
its the total temperature difference of the metal that effects the expansion
