Can you actually roll the car backwards while it's in a 'forward' gear?

Disconnect the large oil hose from RR corner of engine block.  Input oil here 
as you rotate engine backward (use 4th gear and roll car backward with spark 
plugs removed).  With one pint of oil installed this way the oil pump will be 
full and will pump.  It may still require up to 30 seconds of cranking to fill 
the oil cooler and hoses and filter before you see pressure on the gauge.
