back with you. Agree with Carl. MMO may be a liquid to start with. Either way let it sit a few days. Take your time. towing may work at some point. At some point you probably will want to remove the head for inspection since you don't know how good the engine was to begin with. Then you could tap the 3 pistons that are not on top dead center with a wooden hammer.

A great story at Hershey during one of the many Rainmaker chili cook-offs came from Karl. Karl had the great plan: find a piston part way down. Replace the start plug with a plug altered to hold a grease fitting. Pump the cylinder full of grease till the engine breaks free. worked. Karl's mistake was that he replaced the spark plugs and fired up the engine in a closed garage!! Black grease was deposited everywhere.
