Engines generally seize from a lack of liquid. In general, the one of the two major fluids was absent. So, actually what causes an engine to seize is really a presence of too much heat and friction. The lack of one or both of these fluids causes heat and friction. You must watch the fluids very closely.
Your decision on the engine and tranny. Still probably cheaper than buying a new one or some used ones as well.
