Can you get piston high enough to tap out wrist pin?
I doubt it but had to ask.
Yes you have to pull the engine to get crank out of the way, you can't just lower it, flywheel or flex plate is the reason you have to pull engine.
Although you could drop the trans and remove flywheel/flexplate, then timing chain and crank will lower down
Cutting the bent rod is an option, just not a good one.
Also once you can turn the crank have a close look at the other connecting rods and pistons, I doubt just one connecting rod was effected, in an engine running hydrolock situation.
Cylinders #5, #3 and #1 are most likely since it reads like #6 was the sudden stop, i.e. Firing Order 1-4-2-5-3-6
