Final post here, its been a little over a week, and I've been able to start my car everytime using the flooded engine approach. I like these kinds these low $$ solutions for once. I simply depress the pedal halfway , hold it there and crank it and it fires right up.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Glad it worked out. Back in the early 70's I learned that with my 69 Road Runner. Just a nature of a hot soaked beast. That was even with leaded gas. The one last thing I still will strongly suggest is a mini starter. I guarantee your crank time will be cut in half if not more.

I want to keep the stock look, the whole car is done stock as its a 440-6 matching numbers car. I guess its easy to swap out if you need to.

I understand that especially if you are being judged at car shows. If it was me and just a nice driver I would run the mini and box the old one up for the day someone else buys it. I will just about bet with all the cranking that was done to it that its life is on the short side.

Just looked at the Mancini Racing web pages, lots of choices for mini's, is there one that you would recomend?

If I was buying today this is what I would get. I have bought from him many times and always had great results. Mancini starters are over priced. Starter.

I read every post here, my car does the same thing....(408 sb, holley dual feed)

So, I think the spark is good, but will look for fuel (Hi-test 10% eth) vaporizing. So, I am following what's going on....thanks..

I have an old truck with an edelbrock carb and you touch the key and it starts right up. If you touch the gas before turning the key your screwed.

II have also had cars that need the pedal depressed one time before you hit the key. Just figure out the sequence that works best and don't deviate from it.

Also starters can't take a lot of time cranking over as it ruins them that much faster. If it doesn't start in a few seconds give the starter a break.

Thank you for thinking I'm a young guy LOL. This is exactly my solution. Over the last month I've been experimenting and now
1. when the car is cold and has been sitting for a while, I give two to three pumps, hold the gas pedal down 1\2 way and crank
2. when its hot and only been less than 15 min after shutdown, just crank the key
3. Over 15 min , depress pedal 1\2 way , do not pump, and she fires right up

So far this summer , this has worked.

While this is true for the most part I guarantee the cranking time will be drastically reduced with a mini starter.
