I use a recipe of equal parts Acetone,ATF,Turpentine,and Kerosene. I keep a pump oil can of it on the bench at all times and it works great. Good luck!

I'd use either Gibb's or Stong Arm. Both great products. Used a combo of the 2 in a stuck engine and I mean really really suck. About 2 weeks was able to use a 4x4 and knock the pistons loose. Filled her back up with gibbs and let her soak another 2 weeks while i waited for a head gasket. Honed the cylinders best I could without taking the pistons out. Didnt even smoke when I fired up up, well a little at first, but about 10 mins on the dyno cleared up. Another trick is muratic acid, just be sure to clean up anyting that comes into contact.

The best and easiest way to do so is to remove the housing from the engine and then heat it and pour some ATF in to it from what would be the water side. Leave it sitting so as to let the ATF pool there nad let it sit about 24 hours then heat it again and trey to unscrew it

Give it some heat and more oil.
Do this every day for a few days.
Good luck, have broke many.
