Re: LQ 9 engine

Did it rotate when you stored it? Did you store it inside your shop/garage? I've freed engines up using Marvel Mystery Oil. Just put some in each cylinder, let it sit for a few days, then tried to turn it in both directions, and they freed up.

I use a combination of Marvel mystery oil and Transmission type 4 fluid.
