Remember one thing
The carb plate can serve AS a choke for starting. Closing the carb "all the way" chokes the motor for an easier start. And here is one thing that is so true:
I'm sure it depends on your mixture as well, but once you have that set, exactly where or how much you close the carb has alot to do with how many pulls to start. My Spectra habitually starts in 4 fulls, my 1005 starts in about 8 pulls. I've been playing with the throttle trim on the 1005 every time I go flying (cold start) and I found that if I open it from fully closed several clicks it reduces the amount of pulls for it to start. I'm to the point where I need to count the clicks now to see where is best, but it will be a while as you have to test cold every time so I only get 1 test per trip to the field.
And I'm sure if you get it right you'll get it down to 2 pulls. Once I figure this out I'll let you guys know, that is, if there is a mark on the carb it should be at. Later this evening when I go flying I might try to compart carb positions between the two machines and try to match it on the 1005 and see what happens.
