Yes John it starts great. I have figured out what pressure to set the hot tube at and where to set the needle valve for the fuel. It does not need the starter motor anymore, it is easy to hand crank. I don't know the "official" way to start it, but I tried starting it the way you would a two stroke and it works. I crank it in the forward direction until it bounces off compression, then crank it in reverse. It almost always fires when it hits compression again and takes right off. I sure would like to see someone else start theirs though to see if I am on the right path. I hope to show it a bunch on the Texas-Oklahoma-Louisiana-Arkanas circuit this summer.
