I have a brand new OS FS-52S and on page 14 of the instruction booklet under "Starting" the instruction it reads "A high-torque electric starter not only makes starting the engine much easier, it dispenses with the need for a choke valve by rotating the engine fast enough to cause the fuel pump to prime the cylinder automatically." There follow detailed instructions on the correct procedure.
Further, on page 21 I am advised "The fuel pump assembly, carburettor / pressure-regulator and silicone tubing must be cleansed separately in Methanol or glow fuel. On no account must they come into contact with kerosene."
Upon searching the "ENGINE EXPLODED VIEW" and the "PARTS LIST" (pp 22,24) I find no mention of a fuel pump.
Presumably the justification for excluding a choke (my FS 40 has one) is the imaginary fuel pump. I have yet to try it, but I can't help asking myself "If I have no choke and no pump then how the heck does it get enough richness to start?" The intended placement of the motor definitely precludes my putting my finger over the air intake.
Can anyone offer rationale or recommendations please?
