I've heard you can pull the cyl off with the engine still in the frame is this true?
Sure would make fixing the stud thats pulling out easyer.

Yes, 44dwarf,

No problems, but make sure your pistons are at BDC!!!

Great! I'm planing on pulling only the rear I'll fix the stud and if the rings are toast i'll toss in a set but i don't have the time or the money to do a whole rebuild. Still colecting parts for a major tare down next winter.

Got some rods off E-bay and magna-fluxed them, Shot peened'em, had big end honed, and new bushing in the small ends need to hone them once i find out the bore and get pistons. but that next winter.
