Flooding an engine should always be used when you run out of ideas. Reason: you KNOW it is flooded.
The method I described works. Try it. It just might make hot starts easier for you. Irrespective of what the POH says.
The POH method has never worked for me, always a pain in the backside.
What I now do Is
Mixtue and throttle full forward
Fuel pump on high for 2 seconds
Throttle then open to where it was at idle shutdown. Mixure full forward
Hand on the fuel pump switch
Start and the moment the engine fires, fuel pump on high and as it start to rev up, fuel pump off.
If the engine wants to die, just a blip with the fuel pump.
