Just to clear up your process; both the pan and the head have to be removed.
Remove the connecting rod bearing caps and keep them in the same order as pulled to put back on the same rods.
There is likely a ID ridge at the top of the cylinder that should be removed with a ridge cutting tool.
Be sure all ring groves in the piston are clean. They may have accumulated some carbon deposits. Crosshatch hone the cylinder very lightly.
Use a ring compressor to reinstall the pistons in the same orientation that they were removed.
This is just an outline. As said, have the manuals.
