I am wondering what the best pentrating oil is to get an engine unstuck. Any suggestions on how to get an engine unstuck as well.

Thanks,

LBH

An old man showed me once to mix transmission fluid with kerosine 50:50 ..... cheap and works well.

Pour it in the spark plug hole and let it sit a few days. Then gently try to work it loose.

Well over the yeas I have used just about everything that is made for freeing up rusty things, and IMHO, the best stuff yet is the flourescent yellow dye penetrant spray that is used in welding shops and machine shops to check for cracks with a black light. That stuff is amazing and it works. Just spray the item and allow it to set, and odds are it will be able to be moved. If it does not free totally, apply some more once it starts moving and allow to set a bit again. Some heat helps sometimes but I have found it mostly un-necesary. Cost is about $5.00 a spray can at the local welding supply stores. The dye can get into the tiniest of cracks or crevices and seems to flow right through rust.

NOTHING beats "Homers Duck Butter" Especially if you warm it up to about 167 degees! If stores don't carry it in your area; PB Blaster works great. :truth: :cowboy: :captain: :clown: :spinsmile :tractorsm :whistle: :whistle: :hide:

i have used a lot a lot of different penetrating oils and found kroil to be the best. for unseizing engines fill the water jacket of the block and use a block heater to warm it up
