yea, problem is I don't know how hard I can pound on it without doing more damage than it is worth. never dealt with a stuck piston before, so - just not sure. Was thinking of filling crank with MMO and inverting the motor to soak it for a while from the other side.

eventually, I would think the penetrating oil would work down through the ring gaps and just drain down the sides of the piston, but it doesn't seem to do that - not fast enough I can notice anyway.

I gave this a whirl again today - wacked it, heated it, nana. Added some carb cleaner solvent to the MMO for the cylinder, might try some coke or something else if it is just rusted, can't tell, maybe the thing was hard seized, but my guess is not, but I really don't know.

I keep thinking of something I read when I started looking up how to free a stuck piston - said two things you can't have too much of are penetrating oil and patience.
