There's a trick we use to use to break loose a stuck engine.
After trying all the usual sprays and penetrating oils.
We would take a grease gun and tape up the end to form a plug.
The end should fit tightly in the spark plug hole. (helps to have an extra
hand)
hold the end in tightly while someone pumps the gun.
It will push the piston down and get the engine moving again.

Yes, yes I know you should probably remove the engine and
completely rebuilt it.

This was just something that worked for a couple of young
guys in the early seventies with no money and a $100 dollar car.
