Default listening at the right time

an Allis WD engine stuck for 12 years, head removed-block upside down and rod caps removed; one at a time fill inverted piston with alcohol,then drop in a chunk of dry ice- very shortly the piston and rod fell out! About 25 minutes and all 4 were out. NO extraneous stress on pistons, new set of rings and good to go.
