Someone recently suggested getting some bulk oil and filling the crankcase to the top or as full as it can possibly get, then let it sit. I haven't tried it myself but it I did, I would let it sit for weeks rather than days, then drain it back down to the proper level. Fill the tops of the cylinders too and lightly screw the plugs back in.

Whatever you do, don't force it and if you do succeed in freeing it up, turn it over by hand numerous times with the spark plugs out and be sure to use an external fuel source with fresh gasoline if you decide to try to actually start it. Drain the oil and put in new, with a new filter, first.
