Who the knows. Go find out yourself. Did you need someone to talk to.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for any liquid you pour into it to free it up. If you want it to run, plan on rebuilding the engine.

Check to see if the exhaust has been covered and also how the muffler fits into the exhaust manifold. Nelson mufflers (AC originals) were designed with a cover that went over the outside of the manifold outlet so that no water could run down the muffler and in thru the joint. If all is tight you might get by with just putting penetrating oil in thru the spark plug holes. If there is any evidence of water getting in the engine plan on pulling the head at the very least, and replacing the sleeves and pistons (or even a cracked block) at the worst. You can also check the oil for water...that is a good sign that it came in thru the exhaust. Take out the drain plug and see if any water (or ice) comes out.

Turpentine works well but if it has set that long you are still looking at rebuilding the engine sence all the seals and gaskets will be bad and the cylinder walls will probably be so badly pitted that if you got it to start it would smoke so bad you could see to drive it

Today's Featured Article - Choosin, Mounting and Using a Bush Hog Type Mower - by Francis Robinson. Looking around at my new neighbors, most of whom are city raised and have recently acquired their first mini-farms of five to fifteen acres and also from reading questions ask at various discussion sites on the web it is frighteningly apparent that a great many guys (and a few gals) are learning by trial and error and mostly error how to use a very dangerous piece of farm equipment. It is also very apparent that these folks are getting a lot of very poor and often very dangerous advice fro ... [Read Article]
