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

Since you have the distributor out of the engine, how do you spin it ? Surely you don't mean by hand ( me being dull again )
Are there any wires connected to the distributor at this point ?

By the way this is a 1993 Civic EFI engine.
