I had two B engines that had seized. one when I got her home and one during restoration it was always gonna seize on reflection. I took the head off cleaned out all the water and I emptied all the oil and filled it up with deisel right to the top and poured desiel in to the cylinders then put her in 3rd gear and everyday when I would head off to work I would just give it a rock. I also tapped the pistons with a block of wood around the edges as well. one day it just freed up. check the rings for rust and sleeves for pitting -I eventually had to pull mine right down sleeves out and pistons out as the rings can rust to the piston. be carefull as with a tickle here and there and lots of good luck you can free them. it is a good idea to take the pistons out and sleeves out as more than likely you will find a big buildup of 50 years of sediment in the water that settles around the number 4 piston being the lowest point (mine was full and it was dry - no water had got in there for a while) and the o rings that secure the sleeves will have perished. a sure sign is when you hand crank her over you will hear a kinda squeak and may even notice movement in the sleeve at the top of the block. better to do it right and that way you wont have to pull it down again later on. good luck
