Do you have the manuals for the equipment, or only the schematics? The Heathkit manuals usually have a pretty good troubleshooting section. Most of the setup and troubleshooting doesn't require more than a high impedance volt meter.
There is nothing very unusual about the HR-10b Receiver. An RF Generator might be handy for aligning the IF, but beyond that it's pretty simple.
If you Google "troubleshooting superhet", you will get lots of trouble shooting help. The site at "http://www.radioremembered.org/superhet.htm" will give you a good explanation of each stage and what you need to know to make it work properly.
I have been working with Heathkits since I first got my license (1966). Overall, they are fun to build and pretty easy to get working.

In my area, it seems that every pickup truck or SUV comes with one or more dogs. It's so common that I can only assume that the dog(s) must come with the vehicle. So logic tells me that, if you want to keep the truck for a long time, go for the multi-dog option. Otherwise, if the dog dies, you have to buy a new truck. I have five dogs (4 dogs as of 4/4/2013, RIP Katie), so I'm set for a few years.
