• engine stuck

    I think this will qualify for DIY. I have an old 1991 Honda CR125 dirtbike that
    I found in a barn. It has been sitting there for at least 20 years. Other than
    being very dusty, the engine is stuck. I have pulled the spark plug and dumped
    Marvel Mystery Oil in it to let it soak. So far it is still stuck tight. Any DIY potions you guys use to unstick a piston from the bore?

    MMO is the best potion for the job. On bikes I usually put it in a higher gear and rock it back and forth to try to loosen things up.

    That's a great idea! Thanks I will give that a try.
