Evaluating engines out of cars

I'm shopping for a 2.0 engine and I am looking for some advice about how to evaluate engines that are not in cars so that I can't hear them run. I realize that it going to be impossible to cover all of the important areas with a non-running motor but any pointers would be appreciated. I know that I am going to want to make sure that it spins with no clunks or other knocking noises. Also, I guess I should pull off the valve covers and look for obvious cracks in the heads (will I be able to see them on the rocker arm side of the head?) What else?
