Default Piston pin puller tool?

Anyone know somewhere that makes or sells em other then Subaru? I just called and they want $373 for a metal stick with a hook on the end of it. I'd sooner attempt to make one myself before paying that much.

Anyone with a vise, a hammer and a torch could make a fancy one for less than $10

from what i've seen they are pretty easy to make... just get some steel round stock and spend some time with a grinder and hammer... also add a 90 degree bend (using heat and a hammer if possible) on the end so you can hit em out with the hammer...

you might even wanna try some parts stores (lordco?) and just explain to them what you're looking for... they might have something...

Just use a pair of spreader clip pliers that will grab the inside of the wrist pin.
Sears will even carry these. Thats all I use.
Good luck.

My Slide Hammer kit came with an adapter that looks exactly like the end of that $373 tool. Bending the tip of a flathead screwdriver works just as well too.
