Wet sleeve removal on JD 1120

I've gleened alot of info. here, but never really had anything to contribute. Here's something I hadn't seen or heard of before that might help somebody later on down the road:

Recently I had to pull the sleeves to rebuild the 3 cylinders on a late '60's JD 1120 Diesel.
These didn't just jump out when removing the pistons.

Not having the tool, or able to take it to a shop, I was at the head scratching stage when I got a idea-- that worked.

I put a floor jack under the engine, set a oak board with a block of Lead on it reaching up through/around/past the crankshaft. I put pressure on the jack, making sure the only contact inside the block was the Lead tipped board under the edge of the protruding cylinder sleeve.

With a Brass block on top of the cylinder sleeve, and not touching the top/deck of the Iron block, start tapping around the edge. Be real careful and tap firmly with a hammer. The impact of the hammer only touches the top edge of the sleeve. It takes awhile, I spent about 20-30 minutes per cylinder; but the pressure and vibration will pop the sleeve.

You're not trying to pound the sleeve out, just get vibrations going in it like what you feel if you ring a bell and then touch it. The weight of the tractor on the jack will let the sleeve drift out from the bottom.
