Hydraulic pistons and packing boxes are twisted as they seat.  MUCH easier on the seals and O rings.

I'd think to re-seat a partially removed liner would mess up the O-rings.  Probably better off to remove the line and clean it all up, make sure it seats without the O rings, then lube it up and re-seat it.

Tripping with a cylinder could shear your fingers off!!   :'(

I just slid the liner out about an inch and back home in the block, medium effort. Obviously this isn't as big a deal as I thought. This was however on the spare, I wonder what the other one on the engine is like and how hard it will be to move when it been in service for while....

A while back one of my father's friends needed help rebuilding his old 4 cylinder gasoline tractor. The dry sleeves where removed by welding a few passes (what every is needed) inside the sleeve which contracted the sleeve so they were easily removed. The trick hear in to have the welder set right so it will not burn through the sleeve and harm the block. In the case of the Ford a few pieces of the sleeve here knocked out with a chisel to test on.

...where removed by welding a few passes ..

In some big equipment that's the only way to pull bearing races.  Use a 312 SS rod IF you can weld flat.  It has a lot of 'shrink' to it and sticks well to heat treated SAE 52100
