Question 1: Not easily. If you can attach a spare tranny and starter, then jump teh starter, you can get some results, but it's not going to be ab idle or very safe way to do the test.

Question 2. A leakdown test can usually let you know if you have a blown HG.

Question 3: It depends on the milage and how it ran when it was pulled, and then how it was cared for after it was pulled. If it sat around outside, the cylinder walls are likely trashed.

Does it have everything you need to put it in your car and get it running?

im going to perform a leak-down test on it.
its in a garage and hasnt been out of the car for long so it should be in pretty good shape.
