Question about Triumph TR7, Triumph TR8 Carpet Dashboard Cover 1094-0CGY - Dashboard Covers
Just brought a dolomite sprint and the engine is seized because its been standing for three years who can I un seize it without taking engine out
You are asking the impossible because if you try and turn the engine in this condition it is very probable that you will break rings and or the piston lands between the rings. You will be using the rings as rust scrapers and that will damage the bore. However having pointed out the problems facing you I can only suggest that you pull the plugs and fill each bore up with a penetrant such as wd 40 or crc and let it sit for say a week and see if there is any movement possible in the crank (by hand). I would say that you are in for a costly rebuild or a motor from the wreckers or an exchange unit.
