Unfortunately, mashing the gas while cranking is also dumping gas form the accelerator pump into the carb causing a minor flooding issue.
I have to give about 1/4 throttle with my 1405 Edelbrock when the engine is hot . Not too bad . Just not used to it after having nothing but FI cars for the last 14 years .
