been dealing with this problem for 2 years now....I have a 6.5 Tecumseh on a toro GTS  self propelled...it's a bear to start unless I shoot a little starting fluid around air cleaner then it will start right up first pull, after I run it and it gets warm it will start first pull every time when at operating temperature, carb has been cleaned a few times, primer bulb replaced , getting gas to carb, what's next ?  just don't understand why it wont start easy after sitting a few days or so

not sure about compression, I have no way to check it,,,i have to say it does run strong once I get it started, doesn't bog down even in tall wet grass

If compression is satisfactory and you are sure you have no air leaks at any of the manifold brackets/gaskets the issue still lies in the carb could be a simple spec of dirt somewhere, these do have a non serviceable atmospheric vent that can become clogged , a new carb will be the solution to that issue.

 

What model Tecumseh ?

I would likely have the carb instock new
