Is there anything you can do to get an alcohol motor to crank cold besides pouring gas or starting fluid in it?

If you mean "crank" as in start then you shouldn't have problems provided you have fuel in the bowls and well tuned idle mixture screws.

After a weekend of racing I usually drain the bowls, And fill them with gasoline. This keeps the carb clean and makes it easier to start for the next weekend.
