easily..... i wouldn't think so, maybe with the glow plugs or injectors out. otherwise with a socket and breaker bar on the balancer yes. your looking @ 400psi on a good engine

I could turn mine by hand, it wasnt easy but it is possible, if you can give it a nudge and it spins a little you have a problem. If you have to keep a lot of constant pressure on it it should be ok

Gear to gear, pretty hard for cam timing to jump.

Do a comp test first. I don't think it should turn that easily. Hell. you can't do that with a small block gasser @ 9-1 comp much less the comp these things run.
