Default Need help

Hi,
My Vulcan does not want to start. I dont know why.
I use 25% Fuel and tried a hot (#3) glow and a cold (#6) one.
I think ihave lost original settings and now my carb settings are: 3turns from closed for the high speed needle and 3 turns for the low needle.
Have you some tips that can help me.
Thanks

papisid,
I used to get this problem, and now it starts more consistently.
Please check the following;

1/ Eliminate any leaks: O ring on fuel tank cap & hoses.
2/ Low speed needle 1 1/2 - 2 turns from closed (when closing this needle, stop as soon as you feel firm resistance - it's easy to get damaged), if this needle is opened too much you'd get bogged with fuel and it will not start.
3/ High speed needle 2 turns out from closed.
4/ I think this little engine somehow likes colder plugs (eg MC8 or OS8) relative to the temp where I live, currently 16C.

Hopefully this helps a little.
