Fuddy Duddy,You might try cleaning out any thing that is in the cylinders now with old rags ect.Use an old ball hone and try to remove all the rust on the walls of the cylinders you can.Blow out around the pistons with a blow gun.Then cut a oak 2x4 to put between a bottle jack and one of the two lowest hanging rod caps on the crankshaft.Put the jack under the crank throw and jack up till it has lots of pressure on it.Get some muriatic acid from the hardware store and pour some in a glass jar or plastic cup.Be careful not to get it on you or spill it.Pour it into cylinders covering the pistons say 1/8" deep so it can run down the walls and remove the rust.Put some cardboard under the engine to keep the acid off the floor.Walk away and let it soak a few hours.Did they come loose?Does it need another shot of it?It should be loose by the next morning.If its not dry them out with rags or paper towels.Put some rags or paper towels on top of them to keep it from splashing up the sides,wear goggles Tap them some the next day with a block of wood.
