Starting Problems

Bill Hopkins I have a 1977 MF 34-A, 4 cylinder, gravity feed, gasoline engine. To initially start it is almost impossible! I have to spray engine starting fluid into the air cleaner port to get it started initially. Once I have done that, I can turn it on and off all day long and it starts just fine. But the next day, it will not start again and I have to repeat the process. What is going on here? Can anyone help me? Thank you.
Henry Sounds like the fuel is draining back to the tank. You could try installing a low pressure fuel pump, they're cheap and develope about 3-7 psi. They are usually instaled inline close to the tank.
Phil Gas engine , cold starting problem, Have you checked that choke butterfly is operating properly ?
Bill Hopkins No I haven't checked that and I'll look into it. Thanks very much for the info.
Bill Hopkins Thanks for the info re. the inline fuel pump. I'll also look into that. I didn't know they existed, so I appreciate the info......thanks.
