hello all i hope some one can help me with a few questions that i have on a 300 enticer deluxe that i just picked up. first i would like to know if any one can help me find out what year it is the vin # is 8k0-012301. next question is when i want to start it i have to put my hand over the air box hole even when i have the starter/choke cable pulled out. once it gets going it runs great just wish it started better. i cleaned the carbs twice now. hope some one on here can help.
