RE: Freeing a stuck engine that has sat for years



I only found a Damper Crank tool for a Ford/Chevy.

Thanks Gary for that link to article http://www.crankshaftcoalition.com/wiki/Freeing_a_stuck_engine

That's some great read and a wealth of information for sure. It did mention using Coke as well at the bottom of the article. I vacuumed the Coke back out as much as I could. I used a clear flexible hose kit that screws on to an oil or transmission  fluid container from Walmart. The tip fits great into the spark plug hole. With that said, I didn’t get much out. So maybe I didn’t get as much Marvel Oil into the cylinders as I thought. I'll give that a try again with that flex tube. 

Hopefully I won't have to loosen the rocker arms to close the valves off to fully pressurize the cylinders. 

 I'll see if I can get a Damper Crank tool as per that article. I may have been lucky that I didn’t break that bolt off.


Thanks to All for Your Support!
Jerry

To be able to use a tool and apply rotational force, rocking the crank CW and CCW, without being stopped by the trans.   "...crack the rings loose a thousandth of an inch to allow the penetrating oil to get in between the rings and cylinder walls."
