Do you use 100% propane for the starting gas?

Mine is not easy to start either, sometimes I have to let it spin down to nearly 0 rpm to get the ignition. I think it is due to a carbon build up on the inner gas pipe. You can blow some compressed air thru the gas line to clean it and it is usually better afterwards.
I also use a longer F type Os plug.

regards
Florent

Hi,Best reference is that the fuel input must be at the lowest place. Then the plug will be at about 9:00 (clock) and that's the best position.RayAMT NetherlandElectronic Designer
