I've got a 50 horse that is hard to crank at first. Prime it up and it cranks but shuts off and acts like it is flooded. Confused Let it sit a few minutes and it cranks. After that it cranks all day just with the turn of the key. Very Happy What might be going on here. I know it is a stretch not seeing it for yourself but guesses are welcomed.

Hello, what it is cold does the engine turn over slow and won't light off Cool Or does it crank at full speed and won't light off?
