volvo penta 2003 starting

i have a volvo penta 2003 and have obtained volvo paperwork for it . The way this engine should be started is
1. set throttle to full in neutral
2. pull strangler (engine stop ) out fully for 5 to 10 seconds , this activates cold start device
3.push strangler back in and crank
4. when engine starts pull throttle back to tick over

before i found this out i used to crank it for ages to start it, now it starts straight away with huge clouds of smoke ! i have been told by a mechanic the cold start device is the rack opening to let fuel straight into the cylinders
