    Engine is very hard to start , it has been this way since I first got it .
    You have to pull the recoil 10 to 15 times before it will start , after it starts the first time it will start after a couple pulls . Engine only has maybe 65 hrs. on it . I tried adjusting the choke/throttle cable but it does not seem to help . Any idea what may be causing this ?

    While adjusting the throttle/choke cable, make sure the choke butterfly is fully closed.
