What are you soaking it in??? normally diesel and auto trans fluid will free it, but you will still end up rebuilding it, it may also be an idea to remove both rocker shafts so you wont bend any push rods from stuck valves..

Yes, Very Improtant to remove those push-rods!

Get the pistons moving first, then work on the valves.

Get valves moving without push-rods installed.

If you have to remove the heads to do it, then it must be done to prevent damage.
