I needed to know how to get the pistons out of my stuck 302. I cannot reach the connecting rod nut on a few pistons because of their position.  How would i get the pistons out without damaging them also. everything else is stripped of but crank pistons and rods. any help would be great im a first time rebuilder of engines.

Have you tried turning the crankshaft?

The pistons are stuck in the cylinders and i cant turn the crank.

i had the same problem because 2 pistons broke, what I did was to turn the crankshaft witha breaker bar using the bolt from the pulley, and to get them out I used a bar and I hammered them out, just be careful not to damage anything, it took me awhile but it worked
