Well, it's just sitting there, so I doubt I could do it anymore harm. It would give me a project. After working to get it unstuck last year, I covered it with a tarp. I get those tarps free from harbor freight and I've changed it out regularly, so it's just like I left it.

I topped it off with Acetone and trans fluid about the middle of August last year. I haven't done anything with it since.

So you guys will remember, I'll resurrect my thread from last year. I'm the one that had a sp washer stuck in the threads. At least I think that's what's stuck in there. Remember?

Maybe sitting in soaking has done some good.

I doubt you have it soaking where Jim is talking about separating it, removing the sleeve from the block with the piston still rusted to the inside of the sleeve. Even if the soaking worked and you got the pistons out of the sleeves, you'd probably find the sleeves were in such bad shape they would need replaced anyway.
