The radiator is best removed or protected with a wooden board so that if the engine bumps into it on the way in or out, it doesn't get damaged and leak.
I have seen a 3.0L with a seized steel cam to aluminum head journal. It stopped the engine without breaking the t/belt. If the seize is in the block, then a used motor sounds like the ticket. They are out there.
Leaving the transaxle in the car is risky. It has to be held to the left and supported, but not far enough that might damage the CV joints. The mount bracket and crank pulley can be removed to get the motor to the right as possible. Both might be lowered out the bottom, but this would be difficult in a garage or driveway without a lift.
