Best way to turn over my 1935 207cid while in the truck

Howdy,

Happy New Year's!!

I finally got to the point where I wanted to see if the engine would turn over in my 1934 Chevy 1.5 ton truck by placing it in gear and towing it a few feet. The back wheels turned, but the driveline/engine did not move any. There are several handles in my truck...one goes to the trans, the other is a parking brake and the other 2 that sit side by side must have something to do with the dump mechanism. Do the 2 sitting side by side need to be in a certain position for the transmission to engage the rear axle? Sorry, but older chevy's such as this one is new to me. censored, I don't even know how many gears my 1934 has.....seems like 3 forward gears.

I don't have a crankshaft at my disposal and I have yet to find anyone that has them in stock to buy. I suppose I could connect a battery and try that, but I would rather do it manually.

Regards
