This is a good place to ask questions like yours.

However, be prepared to provide s/ns etc. These guys will want details.
My own opinion is that it may be the choke mechanism or fuel pump. These old school 2 stroke motors are notoriously fussy about cold starting but once you figure out the proper sequence they are great. I've got a merc version and as long as I choke it hard at the beginning its great.
