For every liter of fuel you add 40ml of oil. Mix it well, and shake it before you use it every time.

When you say it's hard to start, do you mean that it takes a lot of pulls on the starter? When it starts, does it run ok until you stop, or does it stop running sometimes?

Hi fgbaja

I didnt run my car for years and found out my needle settings were much too rich for some reason.

What I did was unplug the fuel inlet tube into carb. then tried to start as normal. it fired up for a second.
That told me it was fuel/air mixture problem.
I then replaced the fuel inlet and fiddled with the needles until I got it running again.

Cant guarantee it will work, but it worked for me.

Best of luck,
Skinned knuckles are no fun!
