Default International LB Start Up procedure

I'm going to getting a International LB engine tomorrow. What is the start up procedure? I'm not sure what to do except turn it and have fuel and spark. Where should I have the throttle control rod set at?

What he said. Choke by holding the little cap on the mixer down. There us a free manual for download on the web, Google it. That has starting instructions.

On a side note if you have to remove the fuel line from the mixer be damn careful because the mixer is pot metal and you can mess the threads up real easy.
