Yes, drop the oil pan to expose the crank and pull off the heads to expose the top of the pistons but if you have to do any work on the crank, you are probably going to have to pull the motor out

Can pistons be changed without pulling engine

You don't give make or model , so i am flying blind. If the cylinder head and engine oil pan can be removed, with the motor in place. there is no reason why the pistons can't be removed, if work has to be done on the crank shaft the motor has to be removed.

How to remove a cylinder head for a 1964 Austin Healey 3000 safe ?

Drain water out of engine . remove the rocker cover . remove the rocker shaft and rocker assembly . lift out the push rods ( check if rods are the same length and if not check that you keep them in the right sequence for reassembly) . remove inlet and exhaust manifold . Undo the head bolts and lift off the head. Search the web for the manual or cruise the used book shops/ libraries for the manual as you will need it for the settings and torque specs.. Austin engines had little change between vehicles up to 1964

How do i change front rotors on s type jaguar 2004

you have to remove the 2 bolts holding on the caliper.
separate the caliper from the bracket.
remove the 2 bracket bolts,and after the bracket is off,the rotor can be removed.
some times the rotor needs to be hit with a 32oz hammer to knock it loose.hit the center hub,not the rotor pad surface.
wire brush the hub before installing the new rotor.
use silicone or moly lube on the slide bolts that hold on the caliper.lube the pad surface where they contact the pistons and the bracket.
you will have to compress the pistons to get new pads in.
use a piston tool from auto parts supplier.
for dual pistons,you need to use 2 of them,as one piston will go out when the other goes in.
a "c" clamp can do as well,but be careful not to damage the piston or the caliper will have to be replaced.

Jaguar xj8 wont start after replacing timing chans

I'm sorry to tell you this, but you are going to have to start from ground zero. Take your timing cover back off. Ensure that your NO. 1 Piston is at TDC (Top Dead Center) and that your cam is aligned properly. Once you've done that, put the timing chain back on and bolt everything back together. If your timing is off a little bit, your engine won't run. If your timing is off alot, then your valves will hit the piston heads and cause ALOT of damage.

02 x type rear piston/caliber

Use a "C" clamp. Put the threaded part inside the piston, and the other part behind, and screw it till it is flush. Or do you mean you tried that, and it just won't move?

X type jaguar starts but no accelerator and loads of black smoke

Burning Oil!!! If its not burning carbon deposits and choking on an intake blockage. Both will cause severe power loss, though intake blockage is not an immediate sign of fatal engine problems. Power loss due to oil burning is a symptom of warn out piston rings and cylinder walls. This allows oil to seep up into the combustion chamber which at the same time allows the needed fuel/air compression to escape between the piston rings and cylinder walls. Either way, this is NOT a good symptom to experience. You may confirm or rule out the worn out internal engine components by checking the oil dip-stick for fresh gasoline odor......I would strongly advise you take your car to a reputable mechanic or dealership. And I'm really sorry, but as much as I love Jaguars, parts are EXPENSIVE! Your monetary health might suffer less had you even owned a Ferrari
