    I think I've read on here about some special rust dissolver that could be used to free up stuck engines.
    I've got an old BSA single project that I need something to help free the engine up. I'll be reboring anyway so I'm not worried about the finish it leaves as long as it doesn't eat aluminum.

    I'm not familiar with a post on freeing up stuck engines... But you might find this interesting/helpful... Project Farm: Which Penetrating Oil is Best?

    Seen the Consumer Reports version of best Penetrating Oil, 50/50 mix of Acetone and Auto Tranny fluid
    I'll look into the EvapoRust stuff and fabricate a piston pusher as described in the posts.

    I used the 50/50 mix to free up my XS650, it took till the 4th day after 3 nightly squirts, but it worked.
