Re: Stressed out
NB's advice is sound. Although I have what I consider to be a monumentally reliable 2-stroker, I don't think I would start somebody cold with one. I have a simple lawnmower with a small 4-stroke Briggs on it. This is all I do: I put oil where the oil goes (be certain of amount), I put gas where the gas goes, I press the primer bulb all the way in exactly four times, I pull only once on the rope, and it fires up. Briggs are about as close to "worry-free" as some engines can get. Hondas are pretty nice too.
