I was in a club in 1965-68 that had an M20E, with manual gear and hand-hydraulic flaps. Working the gear took a little practice...you had to do it in one motion or you'd bog down. We had a woman member who had to do a slight pitch motion to get it down.

The checklist-standard takeoff was with one pump of flaps, and you couldn't bleed that off when done with them: you just pushed a pressure-dump button with your thumb and they snapped up. You needed to do a small, carefully-synchronized pitchup to avoid scaring passengers.
