If the motor is seized, take all of the spark plugs out and fill each cylinder at least half way with Marvel Mystery oil before you take it out and begin to break it down... I don't know what this stuff does exactly, but it is an amazing product! It will literally un-seize a motor. If you don't do this, all the parts will be very difficult to get out of their places.. Rebuilding an engine can be a rewarding, tiring, frustrating and educational experience... I would recommend that you go for it! If the motor is not seized, sell it!!!
