Frank - you can sometimes get an engine to start on the previous “run” setting if it’s still warm. If cold, an electric starter will get it started, but if I do this. I let the engine draw fuel to the carb. Just an insurance policy from hydraulic lock. If I manually prime it, I hand flip it. If you hand flip only, usually two flips after reaches the carb is a wet enough prime to start it (at WOT and carb choke plugged). Usually 1/4-1/2 turn higher for compression from the run setting will work.

I would try the 35% ether on the MVVS and see how it runs; it might be enough.

My conversion heads are all from DDD. ST .45, .51, OS .25FSR, K&B .20/.28, .45 are what I have right now.
