Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Make certain that you have the key turned to the on position if it has one, the throttle lever is at full throttle, choke the machine, prime it five to six times and then try to start it. The only one that may be tricky is the choke, you normally will turn the choke knob clockwise all the way in order to choke it.

I am sorry I told you wrong on the choke, it looks like yours will turn all the way counter clockwise in order to choke the machine.

I have an owners manual here that will help you. Refer to pages 14 - 16 for engine starting procedure.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
