Take off lid to air cleaner, a few drops of that small engine fuel down the carburetor, fires right up. Either that or pump the accelerator about 10x, crank for 2 seconds, repeat until it starts. Usually takes two or three tries. It does that with Carters. Holleys are easier to start after sitting. I don't care either way. Mine's an old hot rod. Ever see somebody try to start an old airplane with a Wright Cyclone?
