Ok, starting a properly tuned Farmall 4 cylinder engine should take 1/4 revolution.
A quick up pull on the crank, and it should start, or at least fire.
Proper cold starting procedure as taught to me over 40 years ago by an old timer even at that time:
1.). With the mag grounded, set throttle to 1/3, full choke. Turn engine over slowly, 2-3 full revolutions.
2.) next, open choke by about 1/4. Set mag advance 1/3. Leave throttle at 1/3. Set impulse if manual type.
3.) next, with a cupped hand, and with the crank at the 6:00 position, pull upward with a short, quick pull. Repeat if necessary. Usually starts cold on the 2nd or 3rd pull on the crank.
If you see anyone cranking on a hand crank like they are spinning a propeller, they do NOT know how to start an engine.
