I have a 31 Standard 8 where I was able to rotate the crank bolt about 180 degrees before everything got stuck. Figured it was a valve. Per youtube advice I drained the oil, mixed up a 50/50 solution of diesel and ATF fluid, and filled the cylinders to the top. Most of the fluid will drain to the crankcase, and you will have to clean out the intake/exhaust manifolds as any open valves will collect the fluid. Situation solved, after two weeks I was able to turn it over. Obviously, make sure all the cylinders are devoid of fluid and keep the sparkplugs out when turning over by hand.
