If you look at the ends of the cylinder you will find snap rings that keep the sleeves in position. All parts are shown in the official Case IH parts catalogue, look in page www.partstore.caseih.com

As ollek says there is a circlip at either end. Unfortunately it is not always that easy, sometimes they rust in and wont compress or they move around the groove and the 'eyes' are hidden. If you inset a long punch or round bar into the opposite end of the ram rod to the end you have compressed the circlip. Then, whilst the circlip is fully compressed bring the ram down heavily on to a block of wood so that the ram rod/piston drives the end cap you working on out.
