Default Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

Yes! That exactly what I was told to do. Plus, the head was off and the water neck was off the block. I was able to heat the left side of the cylinders externally. ( inside the water jacket) Because the temperature was at freezing and the block was cold, so I was nervous about heating it in just one place (Actually 4) This method was recommended to me by an old timer, sadly, it did not work, this time! I might try again today (Weather reports are for 58 degrees) If I can't loosen the rings this way, It will point strongly to the bind being the bearings.
Wish me luck!
