Excellent news!

As a big fan and advocate of the synthetic ATF/acetone 50/50 mix or "WMP" (Weapon of Mass Penetration) as i've called it for 7-8 years now, i was surprised it hadn't already shifted it. Nice to see all that was needed was a larger persuader to shift it!

It’ll want a wipe before putting back, otherwise mint!

Nah, a wee squirt of wd40 and it'll be fine. The rust will burn off

I gave it a rub down with a scourer and it looks pretty good. The factory honing marks are fairly undisturbed. There's slight discoloration where the rings have been sitting for a long time but that's it. I reckon a hone is all that's needed.

Hope that wasn’t a good jumper until you went and had a play with the greasy engine. 😀

The English materials scientist J. E. Gordon wrote an entertaining (at least for an engineer) book titled 'The New Science of Strong Materials'. It had a chapter subtitled (tongue in cheek) 'When all else fails use bigger nails'. To paraphrase Mr. Gordon, when all else fails use a bigger sledge. In this case, much safer than combustible liquids and less environmental impact. If the cylinder bore can be rehabilitated with just a touch up from a hone, it wasn't really stuck. You just were not persuading it with enough enthusiasm.
