Ahoy ! While I am searching the archives, I request your indulgence to simultaneously post this question to the list for the reason of urgency.

This is the steel-alloy seiziure condition. For reason of the metallurgical-chemical cause of the seziure, I vaguely recall that specific fluids were recommended.  Was coca-cola one of the recommended fluids ? What are the recommended fluids ?  The name Kroil comes to mind but, I am not sure if that was the medicine for rust or for this type of seizure also. Any suggestions were Kroil can be purchased ? Coca-cola I can probably find. (Oh, must one use Coca-cola of the pre-1983 formula ? hahaha.)

Thank you.
