Re: Yanmar YQM15 - hard starting

If I were trying to start my 2GM20F in those temps, it would take 5 seconds or so, and it's a quick starting engine otherwise. Mine starts much better in the cool/cold if I put the throttle all the way forward before cranking and then pull it back to idle right away.
