oh....

I'm no expert but I would presume it is seized up due to overheating

You'd think there was still enough fluid in the block to not really damage much.
1. Does it crank like it normally did before?
2. Do you get a WTS light with the key on?

Ok.
Does the WTS light come on with key on?
When the key is turned on and the fuel filter is out of the bowl, does it fill up with fuel?
After cranking a bit, is there still oil in the HPOP reservoir?
