Well heres the progress so far, I have unseized it, removed the stuck exhaust valve, and stripped it down to this point, ready for a good set to with various brushes, a teaspoon to help scoop out the congealed oily gunk, and a tin of paraffin. flywheel was a pain to get off but gave in eventually thanks to the help of a good mate.
