this might sound even more pathetic:
read your manual!!!
anyway,this is the basics:
prime engine(make sure fuel is entering the carb)
plug the heater on the glow plug(make sure it's charged and the plug is working)
pull the starter with short 1/2 feet pulls,quickly.or put it on the starter box and press it down.
this is assuming u have done the breaking-in,have set the needle properly etc,etc.
