A couple of ideas, assuming this is a gas start. I don't know anything about kerostart.

- clean the fuel filter.
- Increase the initial pump voltage

I went through the same problems a few years ago, here the fuel pump went bad on me.... but it might be as simple as cleaning the filter.

I was once told to run the pump in the opposite direction, this will help clean out and garbage that might be in the pump... and I was also told by someone else to pull the pump apart and look at the pump gears, might be debris in there that will not let the fuel pass through. I diod all that, but it was the pump itself that was bad....
