Not familiar with your engine, but unless the water pump has its own belt, you cannot go very far at all.

Once improvised a short temporary belt on a car that spun just the waterpump. An idler pulley had seized. Got me home. Battery will provide ignition and fuel for quite some time without charge.

Best of luck.
