Let's assume for Notch's engine the pistons have seized on to the liners, that is the alloy of the pistons has melted onto the steel liner walls then it may be they can only be removed as one unit, since the con-rod is still attached to the piston, it may mean you have to sacrifice the con-rods to save the block.
Would you use the liners and pistons again or conrods from a seized engine? No!
So once you have removed the sump and crank and timing cover and cylinder head. If the block is not corroded at the base of the liners then how would you proceed?
I would mill out the top of the piston so the con rod can be tapped upwards towards the top of the block, then bore a hole large enough through the centre of what is left of the piston to give access to the centre to use the standard liner pulling tool.
This is assuming the lower skirts of the pistons do not interfere with the tool at the bottom of the liner in that case, you have to mill away the piston skirt base to get clearance for the tool.
