I heard about this a number of years ago.

A guy used it on a 340ci Mopar short block that had been sitting outside for 15 years. He put it into a tub of molasses (dried feed molasses like you buy at the grain store mixed with water) and he was able to get it apart!

I'm still waiting for the video named: 'How to Remove Molasses from AutoParts'

I got some molasses and some vinegar today and I am going to try to free up my wipers which are seized.

Heat and penetraiting oil is really all you need and is what I used in `96 as my wipers were also seized. Today they are great, when I grease them I apply a bit of heat then touch grease to the shaft and the grease immediately thins and flows towards the hot spot lubeing inside the shaft so you don't have to take things apart risking damage. But you do need to dismount the shafts assembly from it's holding via 3 nuts, I put wax on those to keep them from corrosion.
