Question Start a car from the engine compartment ?

Anyone want to clue me in on how to do it ?
( no I do not have a friend or anyone willing to help - even for money )

I had a really great link to a fellow that showed how you can easily start your car from under the hood, but i lost it.
I seem to remember that you just run a wire from your positive post on your battery to the starter and touch it at the positive connection and it cranks, but i would hate to be remembering that wrong.

I remember it was super simple.

I searched a few times online for other videos or posts on this subject but I'm not seeing anything yet.

I am needing to test the spark coming from my coil. I don't suppose it is possible to just take the entire distributor into a shop and have them test it versus having the car towed ?
