Check the transmission and final drives too, for water. I dropped some water out of the oil pan on an A last summer when I bought it. This summer that A cut four acres of grass every week. That motor and several other A's and B's I have were stuck when I got them, they are all running now. Took the fuel tanks and heads off of a few and set the cylinders on fire to free them up. So get after it, and good luck.

Tell me about setting the cylinders on fire. Never heard of that before.

Regarding setting the pistons on fire, take some old rags, dip them in kerosene and set them in your cylinders. Light them on fire and let them burn. Rust breaks down under heat and the expansion and contraction also contribute. It may not work as well if the bottom of your liners are rusted but it works great if the rust is just between the liners and piston walls.

I've managed to get 3 of the pistons free on mine already. I actually took an old wood axe handle, cut it to fit and knocked the pistons up from the bottom (after removing the connecting rod caps). The wrist pins were froze, but some PB and some prying freed them up after I had knocked the pistons up enough to allow the connecting rods to move). Mine's only in marginally better condition. I had water in my block as well, though not for as long. It's actually fun to work on this, compared to modern machinery.
