I still have the same issue with starting the Bobcat. It takes about 10 cranks to start. And the choke is on when it is cold, and off when the engine begins to warm up. And when I had started it the first time after bringing it back from the shop, it died after it warmed up. I had to adjust the fuel/air mixture and fast idle on the carb. So now It stays on, but still takes about 10 cranks before it will start.
