I found a SS570 that is close to me, and I want to make sure it's running before I make an offer. I'm new to all this, is there a way to run the engine if it isn't installed?

Make sure machine attached with a few bolts if its sitting on a pallet ideally. Check for water leaks and water coming form exhaust. Water coming out of these areas signals possible freeze damage. That can be a few grand to fix.
