It should just pop off with moderate force.

The only thing holding it in is the force from the o-ring on the cylinder head.  Just pull it off.

I glue mine on. When it is time to remove it I put  screwdriver handle that is about the diameter of a piston in, hold the cylinder in my hand and wack the screwdriver blade on the bench.  Pops right out. I guess you could use a piston instead of the screwdriver.

I have done this. It is good if one intends to reuse the Cylinder. A little sandpaper or dremel polish bit will smooth out the surface where the Cylinder Head was sealed to the Cylinder.

I have used Permatex before in my DMR builds but to my surprise there really wasn't a huge improvement in compression so I stopped messing around with that orange gunk. lol

I use the permatex gasket maker with the activator on the CH and if I let it set overnight I get a perfect airseal every time. If I was doing a quickie repair and not an upgrade and the piston seemed relatively sealed I guess I would not take this overnight step.
