I just rented a log splitter with a Kohler 3000 series

Customer Question

I just rented a log splitter with a Kohler 3000 series engine. The guy at the shop (15 miles away) showed me how to start it (he had a rough time, actually), but did not give me an instruction manual. I can't tell if I am flooding it or not, but it will not start. Can you send a page from the owners manual to show me which positions the various levers should be in before pulling the start rope?

As a quick try, remove spark plug, put a teaspoon of fuek into the hole, re-install spark plug and see if it starts.
