I've never tried on an engine (but then I've never had one seized), but I've used it for other siezed bits and pieces.

That's the problem, and it wouldn't just happen to a Rover engine. Too late now but never leave an engine with the plugs out, and if the manifolds are off seal the ports with rags. Leave it like that with a few shots of oil down the bores, turning it over by hand occasionally and it would have been fine pretty much indefinitely.
