Customer Question

I have a 9.9 LEHR manual start. It starts on one to three pulls, but it pulls rather hard.
Are there any remedies for this problem other to trade it for an electric start?

No, the larger engine is just going to be hard to pull without a compression release. Too much for this old man! Electric start or nothing for me!
