Did you spray penitent on the valve stems and lifters? Have you removed the starter yet? All of these areas can bind.

When I started working on my Model A about a year back, the engine was stuck. I poured MMO down the spark plug holes and let is sit for about 2 weeks. I put the car in gear and gently pushed back and forth and she broke free in about 5 minutes.
