These things work. The problem is - until you get it running - you don't have much velocity. You can use the accelerator pump - however, with a 1 1/2" carb spacer (so the carb clears the magneto) it's a long road for the fuel to get to the cylinders. I use a tennis ball in the stack so I can prime it for starting - then hit the enrichener - and she'll pop. Sometimes it's a bitch to get going. I have to run with it - or park on a hill. But, once she's goin' - it's all worth it. You get the glory. Just don't suck up a big rock !
