Can't get piston out of slave gl1200

Well, I started repairing my slave this morning but now I'm stuck. I got the slave off but did not think about needing the piston to pop out and I already took the slave off completely. Any ideas on getting the piston to pop out? Any help is appreciated

Compressed air sounds good but I don't have access to a compressor ☹️

Hook the line from the master back up, and use that to pump it out.

Well...I hooked my line back up from the master and for some reason it came out a smidge but won't budge any further. I'm lost and frustrated

If you can figure out a way to couple it to a garden hose the water pressure will do the job. Have you tried a bicycle pump? Messy but it should work. Jimmy a way to get a grease fitting on it then use a grease gun. Keep the excess grease and use it for chains or garage doors etc.

I wanted to thank everyone for the responses 😁. I found a mechanic shop that was willing to give it a blast of compressed air. She popped right out. I'm about to clean it all up now and put the repair kit in and put everything back together.

If it didn't pump out with the master, that probably needs a rebuild, too. Generally, if one end is trashed, so is the other.
