Question for a serious mechanic.... Can a 560sel motor be turned over with a wrench or socket and pullbar to determine if it is "locked up"? Have the opportunity to purchase a 89 with 102k miles on it cheap and 2nd owner says its locked up. He spent 600 on a new starter to no avail but, that means nothing (as I dont know who put it in) or if they even hooked up the wires correctly. Watched a video of someone changing the belts with the radiator out and looks like the alternator shaft nut is available and maybe the crankshaft nut is also. Just asking in case someone knew for sure. Thanks in advance, Joe Ladd
