    I saw the preview for the restoration of the 1950′s British motorcycle. Haven’t seen the show yet, but I’d like to offer a suggestion on freeing frozen engines. If you have the time to wait, pour automatic transmission fluid in the cylinder, the higher the detergent content the better because that’s what will loosen up the piston. Keep soaking for a few days, with the trans fluid still in the cylinder, place a wooden block, that’s slightly smaller than the piston and about 10-12 inches longer than engine stroke and tap on the wooden block with a medium sized hammer. I’ve freed V8 engines including a Ford Boss 427. It does require patience. Because of how rare and the sheer value of the 427 we kept the frozen cylinders soaking for over 6 months. If a piston is frozen at the top of the stroke simply turn the block upside down and fill it from the bottom. May sound crazy, but this works better than any kind of penatrating oil. Try it I think you be pleased. Unless you’ve already heard of this trick of the trade Good luck happy restorations!
