    My brand new Mitsubishi TLE 43 is a recalcitrant starter,more like an upperbody exercise machine than anything else.I go through all the motions,pressing the priming bulb umpteen times etc.Eventually it starts,but it typically takes at least 5 pulls plus.I noticed that when I keep pressing that bulb there allways remain bubbles in the return fuel line,but these disappear when it is running.Does this have any significance or not ?

    If it's brand new it will probably start much easier after it has broken in.
