Default Ball 25HP

After finally getting the engine unloaded after a week I have been playing around with the engine a few days. I still don't have all the bugs worked out of it, but I'm getting closer. I spent a good day trying to start it with air piped into the head,, but the extra air changes the fuel/air mixture and it doesn't Fire very reliable. But it will start ok by hand, but it is a handful to get rolling. Any one have any ideas?
