I want to restore a classic car but the engine is ceased up. It had a complete rebuild in 1975 and was driven about 20 miles. So, due to neglect, I 've been reading that I could possibly break it free with...

In your instance it's really a toss up. Do you trust that the engine was rebuilt properly? Did you check the oil real close, and especially pull the drain plug and check the oil that comes out. If it's got metal flakes or ever worse, shavings, they might have only gotten 20mi. before it ceased up. It could have stuck rings. But a V8 is hard to turn over by hand even when it's not ceased. If you think it was done right and want to break it free, I'd spray WD-40 or better yet this stuff called Blaster 50 that seems like a gimmick but it's sold in most auto parts stores. IMHO it works better than WD-40. Pull the spark plugs, spray a bunch in each cylinder. Then I'd take the air hose off my compressor and spray each hole, then repeat. Yeah, you might get a face full of the stuff, but it's going to force the spray around where you can't get to with just the spray can and force it down in the rings. You should know that more than likely there's going to be damage to the cylinder walls if the rings have rusted themselves to the walls. And the rings will most likely be frozen in the ring lands. This causes all kinds of probs like low compression, smoking, and high oil usage and fouling plugs. Once you sprayed the cyl's good, pull the flywheel cover off and get the proper flywheel wrench(it looks like a bar with a hook on it, it's made to grab the flywheel by grabbing the ring gear teeth) and see if you can break the rings free. Might take a while. And if it never comes free it probably means the reason the engine froze up was because the main and rod bearings either were not installed properly or they didn't get oil. Be prepared to find you need a whole new engine. Good luck.

Transmission has to be manually shifted. Downshifts on its own, and i can take off in 1st but only at very slow speed. 2nd and 3rd gear seem fine other than manually shifting.

u need a scan using factory or vehicle specific gear--values of components will be diplayd so an xperiencd tech can decyfr--littl code readers dont du it---w age of car certain sensors etc need replacin-believe that trans is electric controled--dont rplace any parts til uve isolated issue----------also go to magicmechanic online and checout the napa library on that model

2008 6.4 f350. blowing tons of blue smoke for the last 12 months

Blue smoke means burning oil. Black smoke means running too rich (too much fuel in the air/fuel mix). If it is blue smoke:
If it blows blue smoke only shortly after starting, it means oil is leaking into the cylinders from above, through the valves. This us typical of older engines, and can be repaired without removing the engine from the truck (although it is still expensive). A 2008 should not have this kind of problem.
If it blows blue smoke all the time, it is bad piston rings or scored cylinder walls. Oil is leaking from below up into the cylinders. This is bad news - any solution will require removing the engine from the truck and complete disassembly (i.e. a rebuild). No engine oil treatment will make it go away, regardless of what the label says.
It is very, very rare in modern engines for a well maintained vehicle with less than 100K miles to need a rebuild. Damage such as this usually comes from not changing oil AND the oil filter often enough. 3-4000 miles for conventional oil or 6-8000 miles for synthetics. If using synthetic, be sure to get a high quality filter designed to be effective for the synthetic oil change interval.

90 f150 rough idle in park and neutral. drive fine.

Hi, Seems like a possible inlet air leak or to low engine revs, tickover rpm to low.outside chance engine oil to thick, try lower vicousity engine oil. this sometimes works with a rebuilt motor. Could be engine is just still tight from rebuild,1-2000 miles running in should cure this. if still low mileage.

is the car going into Overdrive? have the trans shop check their work over and make sure everything is OK. If the trans checks out ok, have a reliable repair shop check scan data and see if they can see anthing out of spec.

1985 SPEED TRIPLE (only done 10,000 miles from new) Engine runs on all three cylinders & will rev up to 8000rpm then runs on two cylinders, back fires & dies completely. Will start again &...

the only other things I can think of mate without looking, is put your hand over the silencer at tickover (when engine cold) and see if the the exhaust is blowing from somewhere. A new gasket should sort that. If you dropped it on the timing cover side it might be worth a look in there to see if there is any damage.
good luck

What should the oil pressure for a rebuilt engine

Pretty much dosen't matter which engine or manufacturer you are talking about, minimum pressure on a good rebuild should be at least 30psi at idle when completely warmed up.(I'd be happier with 40) If it were a used engine with lots of miles you could get away with 15 or 20, but with everything new, I'd be concerned if lower than 30.

My Yamaha FZR 250 ran out of oil and coolant and overheated. Now I can't get it started. Is the engine ceased?

Very likely yes. If it won't turn over at all you will probably need a complete rebuild. If it turns over but won't run I would check the compression before I rebuilt it.
