Default Can't start me new cen mt2!

Well I just brought it home today and started to try and break it in. The #$%$%^ thing would just not start. It would start then after a second or two it would quit. Yes I primed it. I have a brand new glow starter with a new duracell bat in it. I made sure the high idle screw is 3 1/2. haven't touched any other screws. I know its getting fuel because its coming out the gas tanks some of the time.

Would the glow plug go bad after being flooded a bunch of times?

Its about 50 degrees out.

I give up for today my arm needs a rest.

PS. Isn't this suppose to be like starting a lawn mower.

OK, first you need to heat your head up to about sixty or so. This is what I have discovered the NT-16 engine starts at. You can cup your hands around the head and blow on it to heat it up. No, the glow plug will not go bad by just being flooded. The reason its not starting is because it is to rich, lean it out a little bit to start it, then richen it back up a little bit. Listen to how its running and you will start to hear when it is getting to rich. It will start to sound kinda quite and hesitant. And once, you get it broken in and tuned, it will start right up ninty percent of the time. That other ten percent is because something is not tuned right. Let me know if you need more help.
