Removing Stuck Pistons In A 1960 430 MEL & Sonic Test Result

Bought this from a 58 Lincoln. The heads and intake were gone but it looked like the hood has stayed closed for the most part. Been soaking diesel in the cylinders for a 3 weeks. Today I wire wheeled the tops and cylinders then hit it with a rosebud. Beat pistons with a 2x4 and a dead blow as it cooled. One more round of heat and hammer then I will take the crank out and nock them out one at a time. This one has seen some miliage. Ridge cylinders, a mixed piston, an oil pump and several valves have kissed the bumpers.
