Thanks alot for that
, got it started eventually mixture screw ended up 3 full turns out from seated before it started, turned tiller back to "shift" the engine picked up revs very quickly but then I noticed that it was not pumping water
so had to shut it down, shame really as I wanted to keep it going for a while as it as not been run for at least 2 years apart from the brief 10 seconds mentioned earlier.
I have since tried to re-start it but to no avail it will fire as before and still "kicks back every second pull (or so it seems).
But thinking positive I am sure (thanks to your help) that it is a "set up issue" and nothing more serious, I am going to start a new thread on carb butterflies as I am not sure if this one is on the right way
