Perhaps the flat end makes a significant difference.

Now look all the way thoughthe holes in the block....see something.....the holes go all the way through both cylinders! If you are careful, you can squeeze a dowel or punch past the rod of the "up" piston, and tap the backside of the pin on the "down" piston and just knock it straight out. Rotate and repeat from the other side for hte other piston.
Use a long dowel or punch.....but it needs to be skinny......not much thicker than a pencil. it takes a touch of angle, so make sure you aren't gonna wedge it in. Wooden dowels are great for this and cheap from the hardware store.
I used to use a slidehammer and a hooked bar......still do for EA's
But with EJ's it's just easier to knock em straight out through the opposite hole.
