I think it will probably start ok. Don't try to run the starter for too long. Try it in bursts, perhaps 30 seconds apart. If the starter has to run for a long time, SHUT THE COOLANT THROUGH-HULL!!!!!... or the exhaust will fill with too much water and often it invades the combustion chambers.
Check that you are circulating water once it starts.
Damn good engine too, and reasonable spare part prices.
