Default Re: Starting a new engine on pure gas

yes ,don't do it,the motor will be hurt,possibly ruin the cylinder and bearings,,,,some need choke to start others no or maybe some,,,spark,,,air leaks on the carb or manifold,,,,is the plug gapped right 17-20,,is it a new plug or the factory one,,,,does the slide go up/down when you look in the end of the carb and operate the throttle,,,,some others will have more suggestions
