"are you pumping up the primer bulb good and hard? then use the choke or primestart, whichever you have. my 90C has primestart and I use it when motor is cold, crank on motor just a couple of seconds, stop and wait a moment and then crank and it starts right up. got to get the "right combination" for each motor. Good Luck!http://www.marineengine.com/discus/clipart/happy.gif"

The key is making sure your primer buld is full and as Mr. Graham says" figuring out the combination"
