Guest Posted February 9, 2000 Share Posted February 9, 2000 I read in the Nov/Dec 99 issue of Antique Automobile how a guy found an old sprint car and after discovering the engine to be seized, he poured Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinders and down the carb. 5 minutes later, he says, the engine was free and fired.<P>Is this an advisable way to free a seized engine?? My '40 Chrysler hasn't turned over since 1979 or 1980. I don't yet know whether it is seized but of course I suspect it probably is. If I find it seized can I try this without fear of causing more damage? I would love to hear this old engine run again.<P>Cheers, 3MP<P>------------------<BR>aka Bry in Virginia<BR>40 Chrysler Royal Coupe, 4.0L I6 M3 <I>(restoration project)</I><BR>70 Dodge Charger, 5.2L V8 A3 <I>(hot rod project)</I><BR>74 Dodge 100 Adventurer, 5.2L V8 A3 <I>(works for a living)</I><P><BR> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
