You need to use something better than WD40. That's just perfume. Try ATF.

Thanks guys... Great advice, I wouldn't have thought of using hydralic pressure. WD40 was all I had on hand today. I've only unstuck one other engine (on my grandfathers 1959 Willys Jeep pickup) - I used Marvel Mystery Oil in all cylinders, put a wrench on the crankshaft with a 8ft pipe extension and then hung a housejack on the end of it for weight to apply torque day and night. Four days later the jack hit the ground and I knew it was unstuck. That engine was stuck for a different reason though.. my grandfather had just had the engine rebuilt when he had a heart attack. The doctors recommended he buy a truck with a smoother ride (11 leafsprings at each corner), so the truck sit for 20 years. This Farmall had water enter directly into the open exhaust a few weeks before the cap was replaced and it sit for 3 years. Thanks again all advice is helpful and welcome and appreciated.

Brett,IMHO,if that engine has sat for 3 years in the stuck state with water in it,I dont have much hope in getting it unstuck.Best to pull the head and fix it.Like hasa been said,one/some valves will be stuck/damaged.
