    Well if the pistons are just frozen, there are 2 methods of unsticking them other than rebuild, one is to add about an inch of WD-40 liquid into the cylinders and let it sit for a couple of days.

    Or get yourself some rags and diesel fuel, stick a inch or so in the cylinders with the oil soaked rags and light it up. As long as the pistons are not at TDC, this method tends to work the best as it frees up the cylinders and piston rings through heat and lubrication.

    Visit the following website: www.billswelderrepair.com He's in Oklahoma City, OK. Not sure where you live, but a Big 40 is worth repairing. Might want to go through the generator portion, and you'll have a new welder when your done.
