the bottom end is free and seems good. no vertical play in the rod or anything out of the ordinary. when I had the head off, the cylinder would go up and down and I could rotate and check out the bottom end a little bit, and from what I can tell, seems good.

I have tried some knocking on the piston with some wood and a hammer, and no movement at all. Unsure if the piston is just stuck from sitting or if it was seized up before it was put away. I don't see anything that looks bad about the cylinder or piston, although some light vertical scuffing does show on the cylinder wall, from where I can see the piston through the exhaust port, seems good.

In an effort to not break anything, I'm just sitting it with MMO in the cylinder and exhaust port, and then heating it up good a couple times a day, and working the crank from the flywheel nut to 20ish foot pounds. I figure I'll do this for a few to several weeks, and try to use time, heat, and soaking to free it up.

If it was seized will it eventually come free or will I have to pound it out with force? would like to avoid damage to rod and crank if possible.
