Evaluation of motor this weekend.

Got 30mm socket on crank pulley - I can feel crank turning and resistance in pistons. I removed starter and confirmed that the flywheel is moving slightly, but then I put Pooh sticks into all cylinders, 1-4 move but number 5 is stuck firm.

Gentle pressure on pistons confirms movement in 1-4, none in 5

Borescope in 5 unremarkable.

Ive got a feel I have stuck ring in the bore.

Added MMO/diesel/acetone in a proprietary mixture, known only to MVS, to Cylinder 5.

Planned strategy - give it a week soak, then see if I can break it free and retain compression.

A well working MM ETM body will be sacrificed to Odin, God of Volvo this week for compensation.
