    Are the final four stuck in a position where the ports are open (uncovered by piston) or closed? (covered by piston)

    Haha I put an inline 6 in the SLTX! Just kidding, the cylinders were stuck/ seized to the crankcase but after a few minutes of pacing back and forth I grabbed a towel and a rubber mallet and eventually got them all off. This is what I found.

    The pictures on the top are from the SLTX which also has a seized crank, Im assuming from the gallon of WD-40 the guy put in the cylinders to store it for 3 years. So that was a pleasant surprise today when I pulled both engines. The lower post is the worst cylinder and that was on the SL1050 which actually ran great the day I got it to start, but I knew it had low compression on MAG but I didnt know it would look that bad! So needless to say I have 2 top end kits with pistons on the way. But now im in search of a crank rebuild, or a good crankshaft.
