I'm also working on a more complex priming switch that will also let 
you turn off the pump, so it would make that difficult reach under 
the dash much easier.

Another way to clear out a flooded cylinder is to get the car up to a 
bit of speed, then take your foot off the throttle and let the car 
run the engine for 3-5 seconds. This is completely effective, 
assuming you have enough power to get up to 30 mi/hr. It probably 
also only works on MT cars.
