He's not running it tilted up.
He puts a watertight bag around the leg and fills that with fresh water and then runs the engine. Its in the lowered position and in the water but drawing fresh water because of the bag, hence it doesn't want to go into gear!

You could always taste it

I had a similar problem to this. I was lucky to have a slip way right by my mooring and I could pull it out to give it a quick flush on the slip and then let it out again and pull it back to it's birth by hand.

JSP is spot on, make sure the muffs are tight fitting with a good flow of water and taste the tell-tail to check for non-salinity. It does work!!!
