Engine in or out?

I am guessing in, so would seem like you need a sleeve puller.

But before overhauling the top half, I would be making careful checks for ovality, etc of crank, especially if upping the power with bigger pots.

I agree with 90 owner. I meant to add that to my comment. With new pistons and pins you should replace the rod bushings. By the time you go that far it isn't much more to grind the crank and get new bearings, unless they're in especially good condition.

We were obviously keying in at the same time. I was behind you because I was pondering as to why the OP would be doing this, although it appeared he had made up his mind to strip the engine to that state and rebuild. Looking back at the previous posts by the OP leads me to really wonder what is going on, what the reasons might be for this somewhat arbitary decision, and whether changing items on a diesel has been thought through (as to the effect on other components).

I am not aware of the design of the components and wonder whether the OP is, either. Like, does this raise the comp ratio or do the pistons compensate? As I indicated, seems fait accomplis without due consideration. I might be wrong, but I would anticipate the desired outcome in this particular instance may not be accomplished.
