    So I'm currently having issues with the pull start on a "D Alpha 21" nitro engine
    It doesn't activate normally unless I flood the engine
    Is there a way to fix that?

    What do you mean by activate? Like you pull and your not turning over the engine?

    Assuming your needles are set to factory, check your fuel cap is sealing and check all your fuel lines for cracks or leaks. Plus check the pressure line to the tank and make sure the pipe pressure fitting isn’t plugged.

    Depending on the engine ,some one way bearings are inside the engine ,if so ,then that
    could be the problem ,some times ,they need to be pulled out an cleaned!

    That’s what I’m thinking too the one way bearing unless the engine is seized up.

    It's definitely not seized cuz I can still turn the flywheel completely
    So I'm going to check the bearing
