As someone mentioned before, don't forget to preheat the engine block with a hairdryer or heat gun as that is pretty important on a brand new engine as well.

fill the tank with fuel, press the pimer until you see the fuel just get to the carb and no more, then put the igniter on and start to pull, this way it allows the engine to draw the amount of fuel it needs and not be flooded
Not to get into a pissn match but if you read what I wrote, is turn the motor over while the plug is out after you prime it. guarnteed not to over prime or flood it. try it! you cant get dirt in it if you havent started it yet.

ok so a weird thing happened today, I was going to try to start it again and after putting everything back together I had to get the air bubbles out of the fuel line, so I was priming and priming, and all of a sudden the fuel line that goes to the carb popped out of the fuel tank and fuel started spurting everywhere, luckily I stopped it in a reasonable amount of time and took the tank out and cleaned it up to the best of my ability...not sure why this did this and also, I was pumping rapidly and there were still air bubbles just going back and forth so idk maybe there's not enough force or something not sure but it's really weird I need help again lol

i think i had a similiar problem =)


your problem may be that the fuel tubing from the tank to the carb is either too short, or too long and is being pinched somewhere along the way. Before i realized this was MY problem to firing up the engine and keeping it running, i tried washing the airfilter thouroughly but gently with warmp soap, increasing the size of the tank to exhaust fuel line, changed my glowplug and rebuilt my clutch. So.. im not really sure what solved the problem haha

hope one of them helps though
