Lots of ways to do it, but it really depends upon how badly they are stuck. Gene gave by far the best overall answer (no offense to anyone else, as most were good answers). If the cylinders just have a bit of "flash" rust on them, you can probably get away with shooting 1/4 cup of your favorite penetrating oil/mix into the cylinders. Let her set for a week or two. Then put it in gear and slightly "rock the tracktor back and forth. When I say slightly, I mean slightly. too much and you will bend connecting rods.
Now, if there is serious rust in the cylinders, do as Gene (and others) said, and tear her down.
