engine manual rotation during winter storage


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 Carrera; Year: 1984; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2L; Total Mileage: 92,450;

Just stored the car for winter months. How often should I crank the engine by hand (clockwise) ? It will be stored in my unheated garage for a period of 4-5 months (depending of how nice spring 2007 is).And how much should I crank it ? 1 complete 360 degrees turn of wrench, 2 turns ? 3 turns ? I am assuming that this manual rotation is to get oil to cover engine inside parts on a regular basis - I would like your comments on that.I have left the car in neutral, but I do not intend to remove the spark plugs. I hope I don't have too much trouble turning it. Merci beaucoup.
