How big of battery should one have in a DC to make sure it turns over fast enough?

I added a 12V alternator and battery to my 50 DC? Starts on about 3rd revolution. I know its not "right" but works for me

fast enough is a slow crank but steady. you don't want it spinning over fast as that's the impulse coupling job on the magneto. spinning it over fast as with a 12 volt battery and the impulse might not kick in. magneto's don't need to be turned over fast to start. my DC starts on the 2nd revolution each time with a 6 volt battery. the big thing is to keep the ignition side up and not substitute a 12 volt battery for the no starts. but each to his own .and I don't know how anyone would get any work done with a tractor with out a starter, being scared to use a hand crank.

If the ignition and fuel system are good it doesn't need to turn over fast, it just needs to crank over past compression stroke. I've got a 625CCA 6 volt in my 51 DC and it starts just fine on it, or about 2 cranks with the hand crank.
