I just traded to a Goldwing GL1100 that was left standing in a field for 2 years. The engine was seized but I managed to break it loose yesterday. It still is a little tight when I use a breaker bar and crank it over a few times. I don't know why it was seized or the history of the bike but I want very much to restore it back to its glory days. What would make the engine still somewhat hard to crank around. I replaced the oil and put Motor Flush in it to try to loosen up any gunk that may still be in it. I can use a strong drill with an adapter for a 19mm socket and crank it over. It will crank over and spin but the drill does heat up under the resistance. Any ideas??
