Jump it off a car so you don't damage the battery from extended cranking. I use some spray carb cleaner to help it start.
It will stall and not want to idle untill it runs long enough to clear the oil from the cases. Do not add oil to the tank until it has run for a while as it will need the room for the oil that has collected in the motor.

They don't call me Ironhead Rick just because I'm hard headed
Will do thank you
