Hello,

Has anyone tried to remove a piston with connecting rod out of the bottom of a 289? Can it be done? 
Or does the head have to come off?

Just curious.

Interesting.
I imagine if the crank is removed, then yes.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

If it's "pressed in pin"...  no

If it's c-clip or spiral...  it's possible and it will be a beyotch.
You may have to undo the opposite rod from the crank too.

Even so, how would you get the new one in?  Ring compressing wise that is.  Can a compressor fit or be maneuvered in there?

True, but sometime you have to think ahead...  But agree, he may just want a 7 cylinder.

I had not gotten that far ahead yet, but obviously a good point about a re-install.

I was looking to keep all 8 firing.

Anything can be dissassembled, brute force and ignorance can overcome a lot of things, they don't work so well when putting things back together.
