Seized wheel cylinders 1940 DeSoto

I purchased wheel cylinder rebuilt kits for my 40 Desoto coupe and when I took out the wheel cylinder they where heavily stuck. Does anybody know of a trick to unstick them? I was thinking of dipping them in WD40 for a couple of days. Im trying to avoid buying the entire cylinder ($75 each) If I was keeping the brake system stock I wouldnt mind but just trying to get the car on the road in order to test the Engine and Tranny before I decided to keep it all stock and sell it or start customizing it
