If you have the right weight oil in it, believe it or not, it will start easier hand cranking it in really cold weather. Battery ignition especially. reason is, the coil is nothing but a "step up" transformer. When you crank a starter over, the voltage drop is dramatic. Lower the voltage into a coil, the lower the output is. Spark is not as hot. That is why the put the starting "by-pass" circuit on some cars. It is also why you should take the ignition connection from the battery side of the solonoid (if you have one).
so, if you hand crank, there is no voltage drop. This is one of the reasons I like magnetos. They don't care WHAT voltage the battery is at. Magneto ignition and battery starter, great combination.
Cranking an M or SM at 10 degrees is NOT a fun task even with SAE 10 in it. If you ignition is clean and right, the carb is right, and the battery connections are clean with good contact, you should not have a problem.
