    To start off, if your carb is moving when applying throttle, you need to tighten the bolt to secure it. Otherwise, hard starting could be due to many different reasons.

    I'd start by fully checking the glow plug circuit. Take it out and ground the plug on the engine and turn it over (If you're using the EZ-start). The plug should get red hot really quick. Don't let it sit and burn for long though, just enough to check it.

    Next, I'd check that fuel is flowing properly. Your needles in the carb may need cleaning. I'd pull the carb off, remove the needles and flush it with Electric Motor Cleaner. Let it dry and put it back together.

    When cleaning your engine after tearing it apart, use Electric Motor Cleaner, it works great. You can find big cans in auto parts stores. Make sure to lube everything with oil when you put it back together.
