Kerosene, diesel fuel, Coca Cola, automatic transmission fluid, alcohol,
Marvel Mystery Oil, block of wood and a sledge hammer,heat and the
various penetrants have all been used to break loose a stuck
engine....but in my opinion...the use of most any of these with a long
bar bolted to the front of the crankshaft to shake back and forth every
few days....(the wise mechanic gives it plenty of time.) Maybe even a
fire cracker if you're pretty fast at screwing the sparkplug back in.
(grin) I learned the sensible part of the above from the tractor boards
and threw in a wisecrack...can you tell which is which?
