XS400 to 450 Project (part 2) - Removing cylinder liners

Now this is my very personal recipe for crepe á la performance: Take a well aged cylinder block, put it on some stands and gently heat it in the oven to two-hundred degrees for thirty minutes.

Some weight atop the liners does speed up the process.

Wait for the noise...

The press-fit of the liners in the block is just a mere 0.05 to 0.10mm. (This will become quite important later.)
