    Actually, since you started the thread you can move it. Up on top it next to thread tools it says administrative. Click the drop down menu and select move thread. That should work.

    Years ago a guy wrote into Popular hot rodding mag about trouble getting a SBC head off and finally went with a 5 foot bar in the intake port which finally popped it loose. However the entire lower row of grease encrusted bolts were still holding the lower remains of the head to the block. The byline was "If all else fails remove all the head bolts"

    I had a recently severely stuck set of pistons. Old timers told me to squirt some Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinders and go away for a few days. After a week it turned over like it was never stuck to begin with.

    When it comes to old timers all problems in the shop can be remidied with either Marvel Mystery Oil or JB Weld.
