Seized piston rings,how to remove

these rings are really seized on the piston,tried soaking the piston in carb cleaner...nothing,any ideas other than just digging them out?

Sure. Heat up the piston with a small propane torch. The two different types of metal expand at different rates, so you will be able to pop them out once the piston heats up, or they may even pop up by themselves.

After you heat them up another thing to do is blow it off with a air hose. The quick cooling also helps to loosen things up a bit. Worked for me.

soaking it in seafoam could also help if it's just carbon making the rings stick.

spray PB Blaster on them several times for a couple of days.. This stuff does wonders.
