    I used an air power hammer while my brother pulled up on the cylinders.

    Pour some diesel fuel in there and let it sit a few days.

    Not always, he didnt state that its frozen due to water in the engine, could be due cause of something else, unless the crank bearings are rusted or something of that sort he could cut the conrod. If its just seized and not rusted, I would try to save the crank.

    If it siezed that hard I am not sure I would want to run that crank.

    If it is still stuck cold it is not due to your normal heat siezure unless it has folded a piece of ring into it (though that does not normally happen as it generally just gouges the hell out of the side of the piston and the sleeve and either gets stuck there-though not jamming the piston-or goes on its merry way).

    If it is rusted then the old soak with PB Blaster or you could try Rislone engine treatment. Let it sit a day or two and then see if you can get it free.

    Everyone has their own special spooge they like to use for these kinds of things. I happen to like Marvel Mystery oil or ATF. A neighbor of mine had an old Model T that had sat for EVER. Engine was seized hard. He patiently soaked the cylinders with Marvel till he was able to break it free. Was actually able to hone and re-ring that thing it still runs like a champ to this day. Another of my favorite rust busters is GM heat valve lube. It's some nasty smelling sh#t but eats the heck out of rust.
