The 2.5 engines are indeed shrink fit, the 2.8 are slip fit. The clamping force of the shrink is moderate, though. The pulling tool I have made is designed to apply enough force to do the job. Once the liner has broken free it is not a big job to extract it.
Inserting the new liners is far more challenging. I insert them cold (although workshop manual asks for warmed block) but you have to meticulosuly clean the surface of the seats and the bore before inserting the liner. It is vital to push the liner down absolutely perpendicularly, the smallest tilt will cause a failure. I have made an inserting tool that draws in the liner at right angle. Will send pictures when inserting the liners of engine 1339.
(Have done that on five or six engines by now, "proven by practice" although not certified by Lancia)
