Re: Gravely flame thrower

Check the timing, make sure the carb is clean and adjusted properly.

Hard starting as you describe could be timing or mixture or both. A properly adjusted L will generally start in 2-3 pulls, even if it's been sitting a while.

I run my Ls on 100LL, which is higher octane than your premium pump gas, and don't see as much drama as you're describing
