Many times a locked up engine is not all that hard to free up. Plus if your doing a real restore you will be rebuilding that engine and replacing he sleeves in it and it is wet sleeve engine so easy to pop the sleeves out. To free it up pull the plugs out and fill it with ATF and let ti sit a week or two then try spinning it over using a 12 volt battery with short fast taps on the starter

Thanks for the replies. Wilson Ind, you are correct. I'm not restoring, just refurbishing. I may rethink the engine swap though, even if they are interchangeable. I've tried other lubricants (WD40, PB blaster, etc) to loosen it up, but not ATF. I will give that a try.
