Lucky for me, the valves were closed and it was easy to remove the head. Clean most of the rust from the cylinders and now trying to remove pistons. Cylinders had been soaking for two months with penetrating oil.Thank you, that makes sense to a non mechanic.
I have a late model John Deere A,1952, with stuck engine.
The shop manual instructs to remove tappet cover then turn flywheel so that all valves are closed.
Problem is my engine is stuck
How should I proceed?
I'm thinking about using a electric Hammer with a block of wood against the stuck Pistons . About 50 lb hammer.Oops! I misspoke I already pulled the head it's the block I don't want to pull.
