Default Startup after 2 years standstill?

Hi Guys

I need to startup the car after 2 years standstill in heated, dry garage. Had the oilcap off and ift looks good down there. However the cams are dry from oil so I'd like to crank the engine to get oil pressure before starting it. Question is: is there a fuse or plug I could pull that will make it turn over without starting, and without drowning the cylinders i unburned fuel?

I would look at the fuse box - Don't have my car anymore but I am sure you can find one that controls the ecu.

If you can I would put oil into each cylinder through removing the spark plugs. If fact pull the plugs and let the engine rotate so there is no compression.
