take it to your local hobby store. Introduce your self and tell them you will be buying allot of parts from him (cause you will) then ask if he has a minute to show you the best way to do it.Most hobby shop guys love to tinker and pass on there what they know. He will probly even hae a tool that makes it easier

How far have you stripped the engine down soo far? You need to pull the sleeve out before the piston. Once the sleeve is out, rotate the crank so the piston is at the top. Then use something to gently pull the connecting rod off the crank pin (towards the rear of the motor). Once thats done, it will come right out. Do all of that, without using abrasive tools, or dinging up the motor internals.
