What is he trying to do? It should just slide out, why is he hitting it with a hammer?

I can see that but why dose he think he needs to use a hammer in the first place. Is he trying to pound the rod through the cylinder? Would the rod be to big to go out that way?
Is he trying to break some bolts with it? Should unbolt the rod, and push the pistons out. it already looks they they did since the crank is out.

Yeah, that's all wrong. You're supposed to use a jack hammer.

He tried to remove the crank with the rods and pistons attached.After the piston rings got below the sleeves you cant remove the pistons from the top .And the main journals wont allow removal from the bottom.You are supposed to unbolt the rods and remove the pistons from the top

Doesn't this damage the bottom of the cylinder walls and the piston rings? I doubt the rings are a concern, as they will likely be replaced when the pistons are reinstalled.

Indeed, seems as if someone was not thinking during the crank removal process.

I'd say those guys were oxygen deprived at birth. He should have just used a saws-all on it. If your goal is to produce scap metal, just take the easy way.
