    Cold, or warm...start it the same way: 3-5 pumps of the primer, throttle FULL, choke ON, pull once. Turn choke OFF, pull and should start, occassionally needs one more pull. Make sure to be quick throttling it down as soon as it starts.

    I never prime them. If I do they flood out immediately. Mine, I just choke it and pull. 2nd pull they start every time. Warm or cold.

    If I start mine any way besides how I described it, they both run like crap for a few minutes. So bad that I brought it in for repair, and he showed me how he starts them, and they've been fine ever since.
