Update !!

Sprayed PB Blaster 3 to 4 times during the day. And , as you can see, wedged it open a little

And sprayed inside the seat tube a lot. Turned the bike upside down and moved the bike around to let the solution get on all sides as it is running out the top.

Let soak that way for a few hours

Hit the post several times with a hammer using a piece of 2 x 4 to protect the post.

And tried to twist around with water pump pliers.

Now the post is cracked

But that is ok. I figured I would need to replace it.

Anyone have any other advice / solutions ?

I was thinking of drilling 4 holes in the post and then putting 2 steel rods through to make an X to have leverage twisting

Appreciate any and all the great help so far
