..which had all 6 plugs pulled, When it turn over the motor, the motor stops at about 1/4 of a turn an quits. Belts all there and tight, whats up with this?
Seems like the engine is sized? Does the engine have a way to turn it over?

two ways to turn over an engine 1) the starter motor (not good for testing if you have mechanical issues) 2) pop off the timing belt cover and put a socket on the crank pulley bolt. If there's no interference you should be able to spin 360 by hand. If you can't then you may need to look for issues with an inspection cam - ie valves not closing etc. Access to the crank pulley on most models is done via a door in the passenger side fender well. Try Youtube for a vid on replacing the timing belt on the S80 to see.

how's the timing belt? I would attempt to look at my timing marks anyway if you can get something in that 1/4 rotation?
When you said "Been given..." my first thought was " Bet it's got a broken timing belt"

No, it's not the timing belt. Got to go downtown to get a camera to look down the cylinder and see what in there..
Whats an "inspection cam" look like? An near as i can tell, its rust in the cylinders, or theres is some kind of a hang up in the transmission
thats keeping it engaged...

It's short for 'Inspection camera",a little lens in a flexible tube that either is attached to a video screen or will eventually get an image on a PC or a phone. Range from cheap to hundreds of dollars.

never seen a trans lock up like that, the torque converter should let it move. Keep us notified.

Ah. One of those Midland Ross kind of things.. I have a shop down the street, who has one of those, I borrowed it for a bit. The holes all look kind f used, but all have a kind or bright spot
near the bottom (couldn't look at 1 or 6, too near the top of the cylinders), kind of looks like the cylinders all seized pretty much at once, like PO said.
Hm. Could put an $1100 motor in it, Or just junk it,
I have now way of picking the body the body up, so no way of renewing they engine. Seems kind of a waist too, the body in in near perfect shape, black on black with chrome wheels....
