Ryan,
Yes, I got it running on Saturday and ran a couple of carbs of petrol through it. I have to put it back together again which I'll do while I am off.

So...are you going to let us in on the secret?
What did you do/change/adjust/mend to get it running?

I had been trying to start it clamped onto a workmate which is probably not the best idea considering the size. I put it on the ground, gave it full choke, needle to 3 full turns out and adjusted the throttle and gave it a few turns and away she went.
