What engine do you have DOHC/PUSHROD? Was the oil level correct? Who checked it and said it is locked up? Any noise or warning lights just before this happened? Need more input! Any noise like a drive belt might have been squealing? Poss. driven componet locked instead of engine. Just for the heck of it remove drive belt and try to start the engine.

No i dont think any of this really matters, cause we never know what the outcome is. So, hell i agree with wetry too. That ol pushrod motor was tough as nails though! But not without oil.
