Frozen Westerbeke

Go to the A4 website at www.moyermarine.com and search that site for: Marvel Mystery Oil "Spa". If just the piston rings and valves are frozen sometimes (more often than not) a MMO soak and very gentle ''persuasion'' will break the engine free. Many times a frozen engine ''deeply'' soaked in MMO will break free and not need a rebuild. If you "force it'' to turn over you will inevitably break the rings.
