My problem with back firing was not letting the engine idle down before shutting off.

The problem with the hard "first" start still persist. I found this, the link below that may be helpful.

I will be pulling the battery and starter as soon as the weather permits and take both to the parts store and have them checked.

Finally an update on my starting problem. 1) I found the choke leaver that was made of plastic had melted. I couldn't find a choke kit to to repair it with so I bought a new carb. 2) I replaced the starter and that solved my problems. I found tewarehouse.com had very good prices on the items I needed.
