Another thing, today I let it run out of fuel on one tank & BOY was it an ass-holyo to get going again. I guess its about learning the technique for this motor. But had to leave it twice as I wasn't getting it started no matter what I did, I assumed I had flooded it by trying the choke. Anyway in the end I got it going it was just being a grumpy *****!

In the morning for cold starts, if you start will choke on & full throttle, then immediately back off the throttle so it doesn't have a chance to rev high. Doing this way it will kick off within a heartbeat! Does anyone else start their carb engines like this? Im assuming everyone and I prob look like an idiot by saying this.
