I was thinking more along the lines of pushing (forcing, really) a wooden dowel, maybe even a pencil, into them and pulling them up.

Also, if you're seeing those top bores sleeved, what you're trying to do has already been done. As manufactured, the 1st/2nd gear detent pins are directly in the aluminum casting, the SIB is to fit those bores with a coating-lined bushing sleeve.

And, the top ones are the easy ones...

I suppose you're going to want to see pictures...
