Get the ring gear exposed where the starter makes contact. You can get
tremendous leverage with a large screw driver and a short bite off of the bell

I have had my LBC stored in the back of my garage since 85.  I got the fever
recently and started to revive it.  I started with a new battery (replaced the
2 sixs with a single 12V) and in the process of rebuilding the master brake
cylinder.  Noticed a couple of more problems; 1) Don't hear the fuel pump and
can't turn the crankshaft.  Removed the plugs last night and squirted
penetrating oil into the cylinders followed by a heavy dose of mystery oil. 
No luck yet by rocking the car in gear.  Any thoughts on freeing the crank
before I tackle the fuel pump??
