• engine stuck

    From Pork@21:3/105.1 to All on Tue Sep 14 16:08:38 2021
    I think this will qualify for DIY. I have an old 1991 Honda CR125 dirtbike that
    I found in a barn. It has been sitting there for at least 20 years. Other than
    being very dusty, the engine is stuck. I have pulled the spark plug and dumped
    Marvel Mystery Oil in it to let it soak. So far it is still stuck tight. Any DIY potions you guys use to unstick a piston from the bore?

    MMO is the best potion for the job. On bikes I usually put it in a higher gear and rock it back and forth to try to loosen things up.

    That's a great idea! Thanks I will give that a try.

    The only other potion I see getting a regular run is ATF..

    Seafoam down the spark plug holes and let it sit a while, then start rocking the crank to break the rings loose. Make sure that cam's wel lubed too in case the sieze is there and not in the rings.

    It's a fuel/oil addative.

    I've heard of Marvel Mystery Oil used to unstuck seized engines, but not seafoam.

    It is worth considering Mouse Milk or Kroil in this particular use. Mouse Milk I've used more on smaller frozen delicate things, but I've used Kroil on some mightily bound things.
