Question
Howard
To check valve clearances can I hook a manual starter button to the motor?

Answer
Yes, connect the starter button to the White wire with the red tracer that is plugged into starter relay on firewall. Connect the other wire of the starter button to any power supply.

Make sure the car is in Park as you will be bypassing the neutral safety switch.
