90 JETTA HAS BEEN SITTING FOR >1 YEAR

1990 Volkswagen Other

I'm charging the battery, changing the oil and cleaning it up but I want to turn it over by hand. How do I do this?

Just get the proper sized socket, some extensions, and turn the crank pulley.

You can also remove the distributor(not just the cap) and with proper extension and socket attached to a drill, turn the engine over that way. You want to lubricate it right? We did that with a '69 Dodge Superbee when it sat for 2 years.
