Questions?? new nitro engine hard to start.

so just got my new engine and its is having trouble starting. i have an ezy start cuz the pull start broke but as soon as i press the button the engine spins and rumbles just like it does before it starts up but just keeps spinning and rumbleing and by that i mean priddy much igniting . there was alot off oil in it because the piston kept getting stuck and we got most of it out. but the thing just wont start. any tips? and yes my batteries a charged and its stalk settings

check your tune. if there was a lot of fuel in it, maybe try leaning it out 14/ or 1/2 a turn and see what happens. Also try turning in the idle speed screw a bit.



how did you break the pullstart so quickly? Is this your first new engine?

how do you have the ez start hooked up, make sure you have the yellow wire grounded good make sure both lights on the ez start light up. check to see if there is fuel in the fuel line near the carb. lastly dont give up sounds like you're making progress.

Sounds like its a little rich on the bottom you can usually get it to fire up if you give it a little throttle as you turn it over but not a lot!

I think everyone missed the fact that it was new. Leaning may not be the best idea.. Get a glow plug ignitor, and don't use the one on the easy start, provides more fire, and will help keep the engine running..

Also, Pre heat the engine, it will help to keep it from getting stuck..

Check the glow plug, the one that came with my engine was faulty out of the box.

depends on where in the country he is. Often times it is factory set a little TOO rich, which is why I suggested that.
