Hey guys first post here. Been looking for awhile but, with a recent addition to the house I decied to join. I hate to make this my first post but, I recently bought a very used 90 Cherokee 4x4 that seems to have a 97 Grand Cherokee engine in it. I towed it home and now that I'm working on it I can't get the engnine to turn over. I pulled all the plugs and soaked the cyclinders down for about 24 hrs with some spray seafoam. Using a breaker bar on the crank pully bolt it still will not even budge. Any more ideas?

BTW When I pulled the plugs and two of them had some varnish on them. It is possible that the varnish is holding this engine tight and won't let it turn over?

Thanks for your help.
