    Just brought this beauty home, all stock! Motor appears to be stuck, won't rotate with a breaker bar on the crank. PO says it was running a year or 2 ago. I changed the oil out, had about a cup of water in the old oil otherwise looked decent, pulled plugs and loaded up cylinders with mystery oil. Pulled a valve cover, practically looks new, oily w/no rust. Key in start causes solenoid to click but that's about it. I drained the gas tank, fuel was still pretty clear. With any luck I'll get her running, crossing my fingers!
