Shrew, its not a boxer engine, its a Giulia Super 1.6 engine
Might try the oil, I've tried everything else and nothing seems to work.
Ad, thanks for the info mate. I'll have that in mind.
However I've already bought and waiting for the PLUS GAS to get to Cyprus (we dont have such products here).
Alfafamily, the engine is seized due to more than 15 years of sitting without spark plugs.
Although the engine was in the car with the hood on, I found that the liners were full of water for some reason, but no water in the oil pan.
The engine will be rebuilt anyway, I've already got the first batch of parts - piston rings, big end bearings, timing chains etc.
This is just a test to see what might work at the end of the day - if anything.
Plus, rebuilding the engine will mean I'll have to take out the pistons from the liners anyway, so worth every try before I put the engine upside down and bring the hammer
