I understand the systems where stripped down, that makes re-activating them harder!
 
You are assuming the system was working at the start and the person stripping it down was careful enough not to damage things in the process.
 
So I would find a a known good set of SO-DIMM’s (using a another system or buying them) As thats the first thing you need to move forward.
 
Next I would create a bootable USB/FireWire drive with the needed OS for the system in question OS-X Snow Leopard (10.6.x).
 
I would also have a set of spare PRAM batteries as any system sitting unused and is older likely has a dead battery.
 
As far as digging deeper without a DVM you can’t do much and even that won’t help if you need to trace out a short within a logic board without a set of schematics and boardviews which for the mini’s is as rare as a [https://www.williamgoldberg.com/diamond-jewelry/2012/07/rare-beauty-the-purple-diamond/|Dark Purple diamond]!
