Check they do fit first, as Cafcpete says, very few do.

If you're going to call it Vinnie, probably a good idea to paint it Almond ;)

Starter motor is unlikely to be engaged with the flywheel as it only engages when being used. More likely the pistons in the bores. I would put something like diesel in and leave for a few weeks!

more to do with when power is supplied to the(starter) motor
ie inertia is spinning as it engages /meshes
pre engaged meshes before power is applied(solenoid has a secondary pull which closes the contacts to power the motor)
