No, you need to pull the starter rope to get some electricity flowing to the pump first. This is a battery-less system. First pull charges the system and allows the fuel pump to pressurize the fuel rail and the second pull will normally get the engine to fire.
Thanks 6mile, this sled has electric start, it seems to need to crank quite a bit before it fires, usually aqbout 10 seconds when it is cold, but fires instantly once it has been started ???? Anymore input would be great !
