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?

Do you
have the same problem?

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.
