359er, I don't know but a really good friend's dad died of liver cancer. My friend asked the cancer doctor how that could happen when his father never took a drink of alcohol during his lifetime. The doctor told him his dad killed himself and didn't know it. He was one of the best diesel mechanics in this part of the country and his body absorbed the chemicals into the blood stream that he used in his shop. The liver is the is the blood stream filter. As I said, I don't know but......? You be the judge.

Thanks guys, WOW, I have been using lacquer thinner on cuts and scrapes on my hands when in the shop. It will sure stop the bleeding real quick. Y'all do that too or should I be changing my ways?

You can buy 100% acetone in most parts stores. It's a solvent. Make sure that you shake it up real good to keep it in suspension. It will separate after it sets for a while. It's best kept in a glass container.

Wayne, lacquer thinner is acetone same as nail polish remover.

I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

If you've still got good valves on a cylinder you can adapt a zirk to the spark plug hole and use a grease gun to help it along.

The 250A engine in my '51 WC22 Jumbo Cab is badly stuck. The sparkplugs had rusted off and water had sat on top the pistons. I pulled the head and have tried everything from diesel fuel to PB Blaster and Kroil and nothing has worked. May have to try the acetone/dextron mix just to see if I can get it unstuck. Doesn't really matter because the block is cracked and I'm trying to find a replacement engine.

Slim, I have heard about the Acetone/Dextron mix but have never tried it. I bought some tonight, I'm going to pour some in the WB 's cylinders and see if it will free up. There are a couple large slots in the bottom of the bellhousing where I can get a large screwdriver on the flywheel teeth, so I'll let it sit for a few days and then try to start working it back and forth a little. It won't cost me anything but a little time. Thanks for the tip.

I have some frozen linkages on both trucks I can try it on also.

Jeff,

To get the engine or anything else that is stuck to loosen, mix equal parts 100% acetone and dextron transmission fluid. Shake it up well to emulsify together then pour this into the sparkplug holes and let it set for a while (overnight). Make sure to shake it up before putting it in or on anything as it will separate. It will free up anything that is stuck better that anything else, like Liquid Wrench or Kroil or any of the other high dollar expensive products.

Good luck

Slim
