  • Stuck Engine

    Well it's not a Stude but what is the best method for getting it un-stuck.
    It's a 52 216 chevy straight six. I had it turn a bit a while ago like a few weeks ago. But Now it wont budge. I thought I had it water locked but no. I now have the head pulled carbon filled but no rust to be seen in the cylinders. I put a 1/4 Inch of marvel mystery oil in each cylinder and ran like a little girl into the house for the night.

    What else might I do to get it rolling? It ran 10 years ago. so it cant be that bad right?

    Any assistance / advise would be greatly appreciated.
    I have a 1950 4 door Commander a 51 land cruiser And a 52 Champion

    Somebody is gonna' tell you to use 50/50 mix of acetone and transmission fluid in the cylinders... to let it soak over night.....

      I had that happen to my '47 Chevy panel truck. Fixed it with a 235 V-8. Worked great.
