When I purchased my D-JD several years ago it to was stuck. I filled the cylinders full of kerosene mixed with some automatic transmisson fluid and put a pry bar on the flying wheel and tied a come-along to it in order to apply pressure and left it for a few days. everyday I would rachet the come-along a notch or two, it finally came loose in a boot a week or so. One other time I backed the tractor up to a tree and chained it up and jacked the front end up and the weight of the tractor moved the engine. Make sure the valves aren't stuck so as not to bent a pushin rod. I have used several other methods to free one up, depending how bad it was stuck.

I've freed up the valves yesterday. Right now the cylinders are full of diesel. Will this work? How do I drain the diesel out if I need to use a different mixture?

Simple to get the diesel out you wick it out as in stick a piece of rag or rope in the cylinder and have the other end sitting lower then the engine and it will slowly wick out. I would do that then fill with ATF and let it sit. BTDT on many tractors and most have freed up. By the way on JDs I jack the front end up about 18 inches so the ATF gets to the top of the pistons other wise it will not and that is needed to free things up
