I would deff get a new suction filter and fill the torque converter... I wouldnt ever get a junk yard auto unless I was able to see it working first but its not my choice. Just go the safe route and change filters

Well since it is used it will already have fluid in it. I have always just changed the filter and made sure the converter is full then filled it after installed until close and start the vehicle. shift through the gears and add more, repeat till full. You will need a little more fluid then a normal sump filter change.
