1976 dj5d seized engine rescue...

I am attempting to un seize the engine with atf in the sparkplug holes. Letting it sit till tomorrow night and I'll start the manual labor of trying to turn it. Anyone succeeded at this or have advice I would appreciate the input.
Summer of 03 is the last time she ran. No water in oil, no fluid on top of cylinders. Hopefully not cracked.

nice find. good luck with the engine. if it doesn't work, replacement 6 cylinder engines are pretty plentiful. you shouldn't have any problems finding a replacement. looks like you have a 1970's model? if so , the AMC 232 and 258 will bolt right up. the 304 v8 should hook up to your bell housing, iirc, but you'd need different motor mounts for the v8.
good luck to you and welcome to the site!

you might try some research. the 727 tranny is chrysler. you might find that one of their venerable mopar 318ci engine will work. maybe even the 360ci, idk.
good luck to you.

Back at my project after a finishing others. I noticed a cross member under my 232 has a 3/8" gap between the front differential. This jeep was converted to a 4x4. If I drop a 350 v8 in do the new mounts still require the cross member?

Spin motor over by hand before using starter. Seen many broken pushrods because this rule was not followed.
