so if I do that and it frees up that means new valves cams and head piston all that
Or some combination there of. Best thing, it means that the bottom end and transmission shaft bearings aren't seized, and that the piston isn't welded to, or turned sideways in the cylinder.
Still no way to tell what is up until you can have a look into it. Buy it on the theory (and $$ offered) that the motor is completely destroyed. Then anything less in the way of damage is a bargain.
