Hand crank is a good idea but most of us dont have one. I watch the fan belt to see if the engine turns either way.
I know with my 8n I jack up the left rear wheel put it in 4th gear and turn wheel forward. It is very easy to see the fan belt turn from that side. Also works when checking point gap.
