Re: when storing an engine, unused, please...
I have had some luck after removing the head by filling the cylinders with diesel and leaving the breaker bar under tension from a 2 ton bottle jack, adding just a touch more tension each day if it doesn't seem to be over stressing. It may still take weeks, but the constant pressure, like a prop puller may just do the trick.
