I'm Not sure what you know about four strokes, but I never try sucking fuel by putting my finger over the carb. Here is what I do with all my Saitos.

Open full throttle. Place finger over Exhaust. Rotate 3 full compression strokes. (six revolutions) Remove finger from exhaust. Rotate 3 full compression strokes (don't flip the prop). Repeat this 3 times. When completed thru 3 full cycles, flip the prop a couple times. Drop throttle to low throttle, high idle. Add glow. Should fire on the first couple flips.

Saitos like to be wet.

Let me know. I ran both engines up on the bench before I sold them and I know the needle valves and low idle were set perfectly. Both ran like a clock.

I don't have the answers, but I have a personal relationship with the Guy that does.
