I was gonna suggest just hitting the starter with 12v from jumper cables. If it turns 1/8 (45 deg) by hand, its probably good to go the full 360... barring something actually broken inside.

You may still find all sorts of other problems. When I tried to start mine after 4+ years (plus another season or two before I bought it) it fired right up but would race the engine like nuts. I took it to a pro for carb rebuild & dyno tune, was totally worth it.

GT550Build is a NOOB
Default Re: Trying engine for first time

Yeah I've been preparing for other problems (as much as I can). New reg/rec, cleaned carbs, cleaned and tested fuel tank and tap. Cleaned and repaired air box, inspected carb rubbers which will be soaked in wintergreen oil prior to fitting. Starter solenoid is good but has had a clean as well.
