Ground block to battery. 12 volts to end plug on loop style, 12 volts to all if pencil plugs. 12 volts to starter, jump solenoid to 12 volts. Make sure engine is strapped down.

Try not to run it too long

Without coolant.
(Also consider you have no engine Temp Gauge.)

they are loop plugs, is the wire the braided bit coming off the end?

I won't be running it long until I get the mounts, prop shaft, cooling system and glow relay installed.
