Re: Water in Cylinders

Hi Dabnis,
Thanks for your response, and you're right about the frown. Is there one shedding crocodile tears?
The latest problem is: I can’t turn the engine using even a big lever on the front pulley bolt, which I think means the rings are seized to the bore on at least one piston and I’m told even the smallest resistance will stop the thing turning.
I know I’ve now got to lift the engine, in order to shove the pistons out the top. But how can I best free them up without damaging the bores? I’ve soaked them in Blaster penetrating oil, but it still won’t move.
