start up timing test

the camshaft sprockets,crankshaft sprocket and oil sprocket is align top dead center with the piston can you do a complete test start just to see if your alignment is right without connecting back the alternator belt, a/c compressor belt and the water pump belt before assembling.

Once you have the timing belt on, with all the timing marks aligned, put the crank bolt back in, and turn the engine clock-wise 2 complete revolutions, the timing marks should then be exactly aligned as they were when you put the belt on..(if the new belt had white alignment marks on it to help you line everything up, they will NOT be re-aligned with the marks on the various gears when the gears are aligned).

If you mean fire it up yes you can with the crank bolt in.Only to see if it will run,but if you did it right you don't need to.If you have an interferance engine it could be bad however.
