Issue #1: I crank on the starter and it turns over and over, I stop and then crank and it fires right up. It does this all the time. I'm new to these engines, not sure what to check.
Issue #2: it has very slow throttle response, and when I punch it and let off quick it sounds like it is about to die. It never dies, but the idle falls very low.
The issues sound related, need some input.
