I have my fathers Cub. In a storm the cover got blown off and I was unaware that water was getting into the engine. The engine is locked. Away I was hoping someone might know of a good repair man or shop near Tampa, FL. I am no longer able to do the repair myself. I can haul it anywhere in FL.

Soaking over time with plugs out and fluids changed using a gentle rocking motion front to back with transmission in higher gear?

I soaked the engine or several weeks and it would not brake loose. Pulled the head and it is rusted pretty badly.

I've had success with old flat head Fords tapping Pistons with a woodblock with liberal use of marvel or similar...

A home can do wonders but more to clean...

No luck rocking?

In Leesburg, FL we have a museum dedicated to all things IH tractors. In fact they have a tractor show in February. I’ll bet you can find a knowledgeable folks associated with the museum or supporting restoration.
