Hi guys,<br> Soryy its been so long but I think I have fixed the hard starting problem. Here's what I did. Took apart and cleaned the carb really good, Took the muffler off and removed alot of carbon build up also removed the flame arrestor screen, Adjusted mixture at full throttle then set the idle after that, finally when you priming your engine before start, wait until you feel the fuel in the primer give a little resistance and prime 3-5 more times and see what happens. Ours starts in 2 or 3 pulls now. Alot better than before and its been starting this way for a couple weeks so hopefully it keeps it up. Let me know if this works for anybody else. <p>Mark<p>
