This is my first post after recently acquiring a Yanmar YM-240. Start-up seems difficult despite what appears to be sufficient fuel. Black smoke while cranking. I use the compression release and the weather is quite warm. I followed prescribed startup procedures from manual, full throttle then back off to approx 1500 rpm.

Have you ever ignored the book and tried start at maybe 1/3 throttle
