    Hi. just a dum ? did you take the belt lose? We had a chevy come in the shop one day with an engine that was locked up we all tried to free it up I pulled the belt to get a breaker bar on the crank and try to turn it.. It HAPPEND TO TURN OVER.. SO I hit the key to start it up ran like it was new. You my want to check it out and pull the belt. Oh the chevy had a frozen alt. bearing. Gene.

      The amount of leverage by a ratchet and socket on the front crank bolt is nothing compared to a medium sized screwdriver in the teeth of the flywheel. (But it is enough to strip the crank or break the bolt.)

        JeffDeWitt's post reminded me of using Coke, as a child, on a rusted "toy" gun my father threw out from the trunk of a scrapped 56 Buick. I worked on it with the Coke and a sand stone until I got it cleaned up and the mechanism free. It turned out to be a REAL .177 air pistol and my father promptly took it away from me. Hard work for a six year old
