i have seen something like this last year in my shed.i can pass on my thoughts here.i tried to knock it out and the con rod broke in half.what i should have done is taken it to a 25 tonne press. it would have been a breeze and cheap.
Not sure whats wrong. i think we will let it develop

I shall try the Mowersman's suggestion of cheap Cola, but i will get the "DIET" variety in the hope that it may cause the piston to get smaller and SK's press if it doesn't.

Ive got a 60 tonne press if your stuck, an old churchill, when it gets upto full pressure you need to stand back as something WILL happen!
If it isnt orange it isnt a rotavator

AAhhh , wow thats quite reasuring. Mine is about seized just like that . Next thing Im doing is off to the 30 tonne press.That way it'll be a controlled exit for the piston, I can regulate the pressure right up from zero to 30 tonnes .
 I think I'll wear safety glasses , and stand well back , somethings gotta go .

Have you got a pic showing how the crankpin is retained in the cheeks with the tapered cotter pin ?
