You can only gain at this point because if you get it freed up and running you can check it out before ripping it apart. I have had great sucess if they still have the cast iron pistons in them. Get the valves lubed up and free. Last one I did was worse then yours. Fill the cylinders up with diesel or kerosene I used this because it was cheaper then special penetrants. With plugs in fill up intake and exhaust I pull the carb. AND EX pipe pull mag. as these will all need reworked anyhow. Let sit. If you see it seeping out the back of the pistons you are gaining and it should go. Leave rocker arms and push rods off at first. When ready to try and turn remove spark plugs. If I can chain a spud bar to the flywheel to where I can stand on it I do and then bounce up and down on it. Last one bar was not in good spot so I chained a comealong to the fylwheel up top or past wraped the cable over and down and hooked the other end to the drawbar frame. Worked the ratchet end underneath and in no short order it budged. This actualy lined up for a really nice pulling action. Keep everything lubed up as you go and work it both directions gaining more each time. Once you can go all the way around then it is time to flush it out. Just dont get too carried away and NEVER tow one around in gear until to get it turning by hand.
