Valves stuck open

since they are stuck open well then all you can do is pour something into the oil like in old days . we used kerosene . or gas an let it set a few days then turn it over a few to break it all loose.
then drain it out of the oil an let set to get out fumes.
run some high detergent oil or cleaner when you have it running again.
some times we poured in some transmission fluid into the carb to burn . cleaning a sticky gooie engine is a tricky task.

carefull slow running if the oil is over filled with anything.
it takes time to break up gunk.
open each sparkplug hole an spray stuff up in it.

My back end seal is leakig

"The rear main bearing seal? This is expensive to get at, about $1000. Unless the oil is pouring out I'd just put a drip tray under it and top up the oil occasionally.

I have a 1976 buick regal 350 engine and the oil light comes on when the engine gets hot and it is at an idle. when you give it gas the light goes out. could this be the oil sending unit and if so where is...

it might be the sending unit, is it a buick 350 or a chevy. 350? if a buick engine the sinding unit should be on the side of the timing cover if a chevy 350 next to the dist.

remove the oil sinding unit and install a manuel gauge and see just what the oil pressure is if below 10 psi at hot idle replace the bearings and oil pump in the engine. if this is a chevy 350 make sure you replace the camshaft bearings this is were we use to see the gratest oil pressure loss.

Motor got frozen and no water in radiator no spark but water seaping around distribator

If you mean frozen as in, the engine is locked up due to water rusting it together, you're in for a LONG hard process. I'd order a good 12-pack of Aerokroil from Kano Labs, and ~2 gallons of it Kroil with graphite. Dump contents of the oil pan, and make sure it's all cleaned out (leave the drain plug out, pour kerosene/diesel down the oil filler, let it run out, should clean it out by the time you get 1/2 gallon). Put the plug back in, pour in the kroil. Pull out the spark plugs, and spray each spark plug liberally (With a full can) of AeroKroil. Now, on the crank snout, most likely the main pulley, there will be a bolt. Get a socket to fit that bolt, and then get a long ol' cheater bar, put the socket on the ratchet, and every day spend 20-30 minutes man handling that cheater bar. The rest of the time, put a bungee on it to keep some pressure.

when you flushed with kerosene and diesel you mixed the same two things together,,,, I don't ever do this because it loosen up debris and gunk and deposit and puts them where you don't want it...if you are concerned then change your oil more often....the one time i did do it I added kerosene to the oil that was still in the engine and ran it for less than 2mins...its scary...the problem is most likely the lifters (tapits) it is far better to let them go than flush your engine like you did.....let em go or put new ones in....hope this helps

no-please change the oil filter, the micron size on a typical engine oil filter is 20 micron-cleaning with kerosene oil will not remove any traces of wear particles
