Well I have done many engine starts, and like bucky sayes it should not hurt it by cranking a few times. Do you have a mechanical fuel pump? If so then a few revloutions of the engine will fill up the bowl for you. Do you have a glass fuel filter in the inlet side of the carb, If you do just add some fuel to it by disconnecting it and pour some in and you will see the fuel going in. Have someone doing the cranking for you or hook a remote stater and do it your self...
