the piston pins are pressed into the rod - you need to have them pressed out

:werd:

Preferably using the "Honda tool" although using an assortment of steel sockets would work if the mechanic is careful. Refer to the Helms manual*

Sometimes you can take a small propane torch and heat the small end. This will cause the opening to open up a little more and allow the wrist pin to come out. Just keep the heat off the piston.

I'm pretty sure it'll take more heat than that. I bought a set of pistons where some guy obviously tried to do that(rods had burn marks all over the PE ends).

Boosted ls/vtec ohh yeah!
take them to a machine shop.

That is your best bet. A machine shop should be able to press the new pistons on for a reasonable price. That way you dont have to worry about damaging anything.
