Just got engine and trans back in truck. I need to turn engine over to verify all oil is out of cylinders before i put in glow plugs and button up valve covers, the wiring harness is not finished, so I can't use standard method to engage starter, here's the ?. Can I take a battery, jumper cable positive bat to large lug on starter, neg batt to engine ground and jump across starter lugs to turn engine over. Also will it be ok if no trans fluid in it. I'm just going to turn it over 5 or 10 seconds.

Thanks

It would be faster to grab a bar and socket and turn it over by hand.
