an engine needs fuel spark and compression, have you tested the compression?
how long did you run the ram while overheating or in the HOT zone
ok that's long enough to do some damage you need to check the compression on the engine first
you didn't specify what engine you have BUT it is safe to say it has aluminum heads and if you ran it 5 min (as far as you noticed) it was running hot far longer than that and aluminum is NOT happy when run beyond it's normal operating temp, look for 2 low cylinders next to each other, that would indicate a blown head gasket, BUT you should also figure out why it overheated in the first place
