Starting without coolant

Hey gang...
I read somewhere that the lly will not start without water in the radiator ... is that true ?

Reason im asking is i picked up an 04 with 200k for 2500 and its a no start ... and i found the water pump has a real bad leak in it.
regards

Not true, to test your theory fill up with water. This is safe for people do this when flushing radiator.
What are your codes? If no codes prime your fuel filter head.
Are you getting crank no start or no crank?
