Default Bicycle chain reconditioning

Just picked up four bikes that have been sitting jn the open for a coupla years. Three are multispeed mountain bikes and one is just a regular kids 14" bike. The little one is up and going just fine. Used some PB Blaster to get the chain moving and then used some PJ1 chain lube. That stuff is great and sticky! The mutispeed bike's chains are worse off. They are seized pretty bad. My son and I have hit em up with a wire brush and the PB Blaster but cant seem to get the completely free. The hardest sections are around the rear gears and derailer. We're trying to avoid cutting the chains and getting new ones. Anyone know of another way to free these chains up?

Thanks glc123 for the heads up on these. Cameron is excited about fixing these up!

I always let them soak in some used motor oil for a day or so then tried pedalling the bike.

I've got plenty of used motor oil i could use. Should we just pour some on the chain and let it sit since we cant get the chains off? I guess we could try and get the rear wheels off and let that part hang and soak in the oil. Thats the worst section.

I never took it off, just poured a little on it and let it soak in, the multi speeds are a bitch to get a chain on and off of... Got a used Turkey Baster or something along that line?

I think we have one of those old oil cans. Will see if we can find it. If not we will figure out something. Thanks Blue!

transmission fluid might help too since it has detergents and such.

We dont have any atf to spare. We soaked one down with old motor oil and got it going pretty good by using a wire brush while spinning it. A little more time and i think we'll have it made. Once we have all the kinks out we'll Clean it and spray some of the PJ1 on there and call it good.

J, I didnt want to attempt to take out the master link for fear that it would break. About the only place to get a replacement chain is wally world. We've done that befoe and they break on the first day due to the weakness of the master link on them. When i clean them i will use Dykem remover and a clean brush to get rid of all the motor oil and then spray with PJ1. If this doesn't work than i will search the net for a good quality chains only as a last ditch effort.
