Outboard Starting Procedure

Happy Monday,

As a first time boat owner I have some questions on the proper starting sequence for my Evinrude 2 stroke 6hp outboard, pull start with long shaft..

I've heard a few things that I want clarified.

Release vent on fuel tank top
Hook up fuel line
Pump prime ball until hard
Full choke and two pulls
1/2 choke with full throttle and pull till it starts

Upon ending the day, disconnect fuel line and run motor until it stops...

Also, can I use a pint Marvel Mystery oil along with the 50-1 gas to oil mixture..?? I've always used MM in classic cars and MC's that I have owned..

Thanks, as always
