Re: I'm starting to miss Tecumseh Reply #8 Feb 3, 2014 9:57 am
The old Tecumseh engines were easy to start because their carbs weren't designed/built to run so lean and the carb was very simple to adjust. However, I agree that if proper starting methods are used (prime/choke), modern engines will generally start easy. Provided the fuel system is properly maintained. Bad maintenance habits cause more starting grief than anything else.
