sportwerks engine problems

ok pulled the car out after its been sitting for a year or so and the engine is siezed up. I did get the sleeve to move a bit so its not the piston thats locked up. I have it soaking in wd-40 to try to free it up but no luck so far. does anyone make parts for this motor it says 26 on the side and is the stock motor. I am giving it to a neighbor kid so I would like to replace the bearings and other internal parts so its like new for him but a new motor is out of the question I dont have the funds for it.

Castor oil gums up really bad if it sits for too long, if it's freed up now it was probably just old oil gumming up the internals. A good cleaning and new fuel should have it back up and running.
