Engine Repair Question

89 Mazda 929 V6 SOHC.
Had to disassemble the upper end of the motor to replace a head. Got about 90% through the job before winter set in. The exhaust and intask manifolds are on, no plugs installed yet. Car is sitting outside in the cold and snow. I make an effort to turn the motor over by hand every couple of weeks. I just bought plugs and a can of spray fogging oil today. I am planning to squirt the fogging oil in the cylinders, turn the motor a few revs, squirt again and put in the plugs and wait for spring. Will I be OK with this? I put an awful lot of time into this job and need to have this thing run again.

If you've had the cams/rockers exposed and dried out, I would pour some motor oil over those if you're going to shelve it for a while.

Then get the inside of the cylinders coated with oil and the antifreeze in about a 50/50 solution, put in the plugs, cover the intake really well, and wait until it warms up in the spring. You'll be OK.
