Advise on Engine rebuild

ok my engine seized on me and now i have it out of the car in my garage. I am trying to take it apart but have gotten to a point where i still can't turn the crank but can't take the pistons off because of how the engine seized. any suggestions? i'll get some pics up as soon as i can.

Have you tried loosening the case fasteners so that you can separate the case a few millimeters? If it's a bearing that's seized, that might do the trick. If it's rings, I dunno - BFH, maybe.

Lots of penetrating oil (Aero Kroyl, for instance--WD-40 is not a penetrating oil!) and some heat. Keep some water handy because oil is flammable, after all.

You do already have the heads off, right?

Take the cylinders off and then strip the engine down the rest of the way. Take all the nuts sand bolts off the case and then separate the case halves. Leave the pistons on and take them off afterwards.
