Hey, Robert... Last year I came across an OPS 67 that was completely seized. I removed the head and the carb, soaked it gasoline overnight and then I sprayed a ton of WD40 all over it and let sit for a few hours. Eventually I was able to turn the flywheel by hand... At that point I inserted a 1/4" rod shank in the collett and used a drill at low rpm to get it moving a lil faster. In no time, it was turning smooth as can be. Put it back together, and it fired right up. Hopefully your bearings aren't rusted.
Good luck

Vince

I'd send that motor to Rod Geraghty and let him go through it as he's one of the K&B "gurus" that's still around. If anyone can get it running, Rod can :)
