    Plymouthy Adams got a reaction from MackTheFinger in Fluid drive locked up?   
    Frank...I have seen carboned up engines that would not turn over with the carbon fallen from the combustion chamber and down on the piston after sitting, getting damp drying out and then flaking off and down...simple pull the head, decoke....new gasket and many miles and smiles down the road....a piston, if more than one car cut rust to a certain degree then bind up again....seen this many times also.  Would I suspect a bent rod...only if the lever used was quite long....would I suspect rust and frozen valves....you bet your sweet bippy I do...

    I suggest you pull the head and inspect for stuck valves and the short, maybe rusted cylinder wall and thus prevent internal damage/galling to cam/lifter etc...your call though...this in my opinion has the less likelihood of doing damage...if you just freeing it up to do a tear down and rebuild, you may be replacing the items automatically you  may damage and in that case....get a larger lever...

    the manner in which the cylinder locks into the barrel requires one to be able to turn the cylinder within the barrel of the handle via a key or at least pick the tumbler to where the cylinder will turn.  there is a brass locating tab that aligns and will protrude into the barrel.  The cylinder is cam ground so that when the key is turned the pin can be pushed down against the cam and out of the hole.  This is usually done with a paper clip or substitute wire through a very small bored hole in the handle assembly.   When the new lock cylinder and key is inserted and turned the cam will again push the locating/lock pin back into the hole in the handle.

    Not sure but I guess my typing did not make any sense...I work at a local county as a DPW employee (in the office)...as a full time job...my second job is in retail at the local Home Depot Store...

    Plymouthy Adams got a reaction from Jocko_51_B3B in Distributor timing question   
    as assembly of the oil pump would be that of the maker there is no guarantee in my opinion that the 7 o'clock could or will be written in stone if this is a replaced unit....what you need to do is place its position as close to the 7 position as you can and ENSURE your distributor cap tower is indexable to this tower as the number one plug wire.....this is but a guide line for uniformity and should be followed as best possible to keep from getting mislead by yourself or anyone else that your timing is off by looking at this single indicator.  this 5/8 inch down is quite a distance from TDC in respect to degrees....
