No. It's junk. You can try taking the spark plugs out and turning the engine over by hand. You will need a 17mm or 19mm socket and a long breaker bar. It doesn't really matter if it turns over or not, the engine is most likely useless.

No, on the end of the harmonic balancer (thats where the big pulley is at the end of the engine, down low.)

I forget which side it's on but you can turn the wheels one way or the other and reach the crank pulley through a hole in the plastic. You will need a long extension too.
