    If all else fails, put the spark plugs back in and put the cylinder head nuts on loosely, then crank it.

    Smack the hell out of it with a rubber mallet. You might have to put some lube on the studs cause they are corroded

    DON'T put water in it! You can put a little oil in it, then turn it slowly. Try to turn the drive coupling by hand. Don't use the starter or you might tear up the starter or bend a rod.
