You may not even need to spin the whole engine for testing spark.


1. Disconnect the injectors. (If EFI)
2. Mark distributor position.
3. Remove dist bolts and pull out the dist.
4. Spin the insides of the dist from the coupling and look for spark.

Edit: Might be good to keep the dist grounded to the engine while spinning it!
