Hey all...So here's the deal...

I've got my Cougar running well, however it takes 4 pulls to get it to fire. Once it runs, it runs great. I've cleaned the carbs, but what used to be a two pull "cold" machine is now 4 or 5. Warm, it's a one pull wonder though.

Any "fine tuning" I can do.?

Thanks...I'm anxiously awaiting the 12" predicted...

Bigben has a valid point. If the compression is good, hard starting is either a choke plunger problem or a pilot jet circuit problem. There still could be some varnish built up in one of the air/fuel passageways, or maybe the choke lever isn't lifting the plunger correctly to enrich the air/fuel.

Carbs were COMPLETELY disassembled and cleaned. I'll check the choke tomorrow...By the morning I should wake up to 10-12" on the ground!

How many people are HAPPY to have trouble getting out the door because of a 4 foot drift of snow?

A strange lot we are!lol
