Help Needed, Whipper Snipper Primer.
#1

I bought a whipper snipper today and it was used, the guy explained to me that it used a different kind of primer from the general bulb type and gave me a little demo, I didn't get a good look but it looked simple enough, fast forward and I can't get it to start, this is what it looks like, I hope someone can help.

I have no idea, I can take a full length photo if it would help, do you have any suggestions, and how does the tap work?

Turns fuel on to the carby, looking at the pic id suggest its in the on position, check by removing the fuel line below the tap.

May be a little metal lever to "tickle the carb".

The fuel tank is higher than the carby (hence the shut-off tap) gravity feed means there is no need for a primer/pump

Choke lever is evident in the photo.

 

This type of system will not run upside down for very long.

I remember what I'd forgotten but can't remember why I needed to
