Try an auto parts store with a tool rental and see if they have a wrist pin puller.

A heavy piece of hollow stock slides onto the long leg of that L, and is kept on that leg by a washer and nut threaded on. Other methods of keeping the hollow stock on that long part of the tool will work too. For example, another bend. The hollow stock could be a piece of iron pipe.
You hook the end of the tool on the inside of the wrist pin, and then slide the hollow stock on the tool shaft/leg. The action is like a hammer striking the keeper. This is a "slide hammer". Keep your fingers out of the way of the slider!
I hope this helps.

Take about two foot long piece of 1/4" all-thread. Put a piece of rubber tubing about the same length of the piston pin in between two locknuts on the end of the all-thread.
The idea behind this is to insert the rubber part in the piston pin, then tighten one of the nuts. The rubber tubing will squish and expand out against the piston pin. Then you can make a little slide hammer on the part that sticks out. I actually had my engine hanging from this tool using my cherry picker, and hammering on the engine trying to get it loose! With a sledge hammer! Quite fun!
