One other thing that can cause hard starting is reeds not sealing.Also check that the pulse port is clear of any obstructions,from crankcase to the carb.But it is running so it may be just partly clogged.Try just opening the low needle two turns and see what happens.If it starts it will be RICH.

I'll just richen the low needle and see what happens. It's got extremely low time so the reeds are good. Also, when I first got the engine I deburred the exhaust and intake ports plus checked the reeds for a good seal during the Bowman conversion.

Engine update:
Instead of all the flips and tricks to start this engine just plug the choke with your thumb. Then flip the prop until your thumb is wet.

What RPM's are you guys getting on a 24x8 3D prop? I'm only getting about 6000 rpm's.
