Default Froze up engines

I have 3 nitro engines that have set up for a couple of years.
They have "froze up"....example: flywheel wont turn, carb wont open or close
Is there anything I can soak them in or spray them with that will eventually free them up?

Default frozen engine

hi there, one thing you can do, it to fil the engine with fuel diesel for a couple of hours. The fuel will go everywhere and losse the part stock. we did that on our snowmobile a couple of time afert the storage season. Good luck
