Not my first rodeo LOL. plugs are out, cyls are soaked. I use a pry bar in the ring gear to work them. She's stuck good. When the business ends of the plugs are balls of rust, you have problems. Sitting for decades with no exhaust on it and no oil in the cup. That creates a moisture freeway thru the engine. It will have to wait until i can get some time. I'll have to take off the head and see how bad it is. The tranny has been filled with water too. I took the fill plug out and the gears are so rusty you hardly see the teeth. The shift rails are all stuck too. Good thing it was in neutral when they parked it.I only bought it because it had a decent square tank rad I need for a 41 we're doing up for show. I've fixed worse, but the value of them has dropped so much over the years you have to be careful how much you sink into them.
