and when it comes to starting it, seems you need to be able to spin it over fast before it will start to pickup and take off.

My Webster experience has always puzzled me - I have found that my cordless drill, on its low speed setting, will NEVER get the Webster to start; I have to use the high-speed setting on the drill. Meanwhile, though, if the carb is dialed in right, I can start it by hand, holding onto the rim of the flywheel and yanking it over. I wouldn't think the result would be very fast, surely not even as fast as the low-speed setting on the drill - ???

But as I said, slow-speed drill won't start mine either - much to my surprise. I'm still puzzled over this one ....
