It depends on how long it has set in that condition. Crank seals on either side of the engine could be compromised. The 600 is particulaly prone to losing the seal on the clutch side anyway. I have seen far too many of those with a burnt piston and scored cylinder on the clutch side. It is very simple to remove the cylinder heads and inspect the pistons and cylinder walls before you buy it. If the walls are ribbed, it has been overfuelling for a long time. Like a shotgun barrel that has used steel shot.
