i wouldn't recommend it at all. you need a load on the engine ie. flywheel, clutch assembly, tranny, etc.

it wont start without the flywheel, trans, or anything else you pulled off because thats what the starter spins to start the engine. are you sure you know what your doing?

What are you doing anyways? I don't see why you would need to start the car with no tranny in which is impossible as already stated.

Sure they do. They either have a flywheel or a flexplate on the motor that the starter can grab onto. I see no reason why it wouldn't start if you put the flywheel and clutch assembly back on there, and of course the starter too.

I completely forgot about that, but they have a machine they hook them up to.
