Unhappy oh o...engine problems, anyone help please?

ok, heres the go. ive got an old kyosho gx11 (?) motor, i run it about a year ago then put it away. i emptied the fuel tank but didnt do anything else (still has dirt all over chassis ...)

nehow, went to start it up today and i couldnt even pull the starter. seems the whole thing has locked tight, even the carburetta was frozen and i had to use a lever to wedge it loose again...

nebody know what i've done and how i can fix it?

thanks

spray nitro cleaner in it.. and also use after run oil.... coz i think the 'old' nitro has been frozen in it and become the glue that caused the piston to be 'locked' in the sleeve.

i think you better open the whole thing up and give it a GOOD CLEANING.....

also check for TEAR and WEAR....

TAKE OFF CARB AND HEAD WHILE ENGINE IS STILL ONE THE CHASSIS(EASIER TO GET TIGHT SCREWS LOOSE) THEN UN SCREW THE ENGINE FROM THE CHASSIS AND TAKE APART

Motor spray would probably work best to dissolve the gum and varnish left by the old fuel.
