M8214m, The way I removed the porcelain from my cylinder was to put a hose on my air gun (120 psi on the compressor) that filled the plug so it created a huge amount of pressure inside the cylinder and when I removed the hose (more like it was being forced out from the pressure) the porcelain flew out and almost nailed me in the eye. Remember eye protection! Porcelain in the eye is worse than in the cylinder!

Oh, and remember that the smaller the diameter the hose that you attach to the vacuum, the lower the vacuum pressure (suction).

That should not be an issue, the cylinders are separate so the only thing that might be an issue would be in which state of the cycle the cylinders are in, open for fuel, closed for combustion, open for exhaust porting...
