    Any thoughts on what to pour into the cylinders to help free it up?

    Oley, Pa
    Marvel Mystery Oil, and I have heard also transmission fluid but not sure about that. Have never needed to .

  4. Did you get it free? I have always used a mixture of kerosene marvel mystery oil and ATF fluid. And let it sit. You could also try spraying Kroil in and let that sit.
