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.

make sure the needles are set right...prime the motor watch for fuel to enter the carb...and make sure glow plug is good...put glow charger on with a good charge and it should fire up pretty quickly..just dont prime it to much or you will flood it
