Thanks DADS50. Now I know. Guess you were using a heat gun or hair dryer in the video?

Thanks Jerry. I have squirted oil in the spark plug ports a long time ago and would periodically turn the engine over manually. I have also had the valve cover off and witnessed all the valves moving. I can actually turn the engine over by hand with the flywheel installed, but will make sure it turns over manually before putting any fire to it. Appreciate the good coaching!

Thanks for your tip Mr. deluxe54PANEL. Going to get some good penetrant today and start the process.

CASO,

Way to go. I'll study this a lot closer. Right now, I am hitting mine about every 4 or 5 hours with some good penetrating spray and a couple of taps from either side with a light tap of the hammer. Just trying to loosen it up from years in the same position.
