The plug for the stator is on the rear of the engine on the left side. Turn the bolt in the direction you would to tighten it. righty, tighty -- you know. You don't want to turn it such that it would loosen. That bolt coming loose has done some not so insignificant damage to the cover.
If the engine is frozen it can be freed up and with proper treatment and care it will still run a long time. Usually the rings rust and stick to the cylinder wall. Sometimes the entire cylinder is rusty which means there will be even more rust to get rid of. Theoretically most of it will go out the exhaust but some will get in the oil where is can do damage to bearings and cam shafts. lots of flushing of the cylinders and very frequent oil changes should take care of it.
Let us know what you find,
