    Default Stuck engine

    I have a 265 chevy v/8 that has been sitting in a barn for 40 years and is stuck. I've been spraying it with PB Blaster to loosen it up ,but not having a lot of success. Any products anyone can suggest that might work better ?

    Probalby rust above and below the pistons, I would remove the heads and then turn it to see the damage to the walls

    Yup could not have said it better When you do do get the heads off you will have better access to the pistons and now with a dead blow hammer and a block off wood tap on them to send a shock threw them and it will help move the lubricants threw the rusted area. You may also want to spin the oil pump so it generates some oil threw the other bearing surfaces threw the block.....
    Thanks Steve

    The reason the engine is stuck is probably due to the fact it sat in the barn for years with fog and humidity and cyl. heads off that made for rust.

    How about some diesel fuel sprayed on the cylinder walls every few days and sit it out in the sun so you get the metal to expand a bit .... every little bit may help
    Thanks Steve

    Marvel mystery oil and let it soak good, another option would be to use some transmission fluid as well, key here is to let it soak and be generous on the oil.
