He may have the timming off, which if it is and he tried starting it, may have damaged the motor. I would keep looking and pass on this one unless your looking for a project car and wanting to spend more money to get it running.

How can i tell if the motor is damaged before buying it?

Find another car, you would be much better off with a Subaru, Toyota or Honda.
