82 450 nighthawk, been sitting for awhile, clutch will not disengage, its not running yet, either the disks are rusted together or glued with old oil, anything I can put in the crankcase to loosen it up? I just drained the old oil so the crankcase is empty.

Your hands..... Mechanical/physical separation (disassembly, clean and re-oil, reassembly) is the correct method of curing the "dried oil" problem....
There ARE other methods however......

it just came loose from putting it in gear, pulling clutch lever and pushing the bike. once I get it running then will look further into the clutch condition, maybe.

Yep, That's one of the "other" methods, but you risk (albeit only slightly) damaging the friction plates that way......
