If that stuff doesn’t dissolve easy, I would think the motor needs to be rebuilt if you expect it to be reliable. I would try to get it to dissolve without scrubbing that way you know the other areas You can’t scrub or see are dissolving as well.
They surly didn’t change the oil. I would think that those components are all effected by that much sludge/lack of oil change so they need to be replaced. I mean I’m assuming they didn’t change the oil here.
The answer is just to turn it harder, Use a cheater bar and a strap wrench or similar. You might as well get a hole set of heavy duty strap wrench’s if you don’t have them. Don’t buy the ones at the big box stores they are too weak.
I bet there’s more corrosion and grime in this set you have. In my opinion these sets need to be worked through pretty deeply when you get them. I think you almost have to have mechanical know how to keep these running. There a far cry from the reliability of modern continuous run rated...
