Can I start my 924S with the transaxle removed

I pulled my transaxle a while back to clean and fix leaks. It hasnít been started for a good bit as priority has put it to the side. Can I start it or will it damage the torque tube by doing so. Have a small fortune in this car and donít need to unnecessarily add to it.

I have no experience on this matter whatsoever however, while running the engine with the transmission out wonít cause any damage, Iíd be concerned that the shaft may creep backwards and dislodge itself from the front engine bearing.
