Start here and watch the video. My model "L" is set to fire a TINY fraction just before TDC. That makes them so much easier to get started. Too far advanced and they will kick back but just right is what you need . The correct way to start them using the tryed and true strap I can explain latter. Watch the video first. The timing is critical on these. Also this argument has gone round and round but I only use Hi-Test gas in everything. Regular is just so much crap.

Here it is. You should really not have to pull the head. This isn't rocket science. If you want to watch the pistion go up and down....when you know the piston is very close to the top pour enough oil in the cylinder so you can see the top of the oil. Just watch the oil go up and down as you gently turn the pulley back and forth.

Here are a couple of screen shots from the actual Gravely books.
