NEW G-26 Won't Start

It is a pump carb.

I am using the stock choke. I did not use the venturi in that I didn't want another hole in that very nice cowl. I reach two fingers in the front opening and open and close the...

Kangke Super Kraft 60 CAP 232 CG?

Does anyone have any experience with the C/G on this bird? Started where I thought the instructions called for, 2 1/2 or so from the leading edge, seems way too far forward. Not clear whether this is...
