Pour automatic transmission fluid into each plug hole. Put plugs back in. Or mix acetone with the atf first then pour in. In the oft chance that the rod and mains have a loose coating of rust then that would have to be addressed before trying to spin it over. Or better yet, sell it on ebay.


Personally, I want to make sure the crankshaft can turn before I go sell it. As far as it sits, it's a giant paperweight.

I don't think that it's a big dollar item but it is pretty simple and forgiving. The engines were used in many different applications . They were used jeeps for years in both four and six cylinders just like Hercules engines.
First engine I ever rebuilt was a continental.
