No, don't just crank.  If there's any dirt in the system it might go
into the metering head, injectors or cold start valve.

Hook the system up ready to go, pull the connector off the warm-up
regulator (so it doesn't heat up) and then jumper the fuel pump via the
relay socket - it's the large connector parallel to and nearest to the
side of the fuse box.  This will flush fuel round the loop, back into
the tank and eventually back through the filters.  Let it run for a
minute or more.
