great book here is an Excerpt: … Part V. Difficulty In Starting. In The Pages Immediately Following We Point Out The Remedies For Most Of The Ordinary Troubles Met With By The Motorist From Time To Time, Beginning With Those Which May Cause Difficulty In Starting. No Beginner Should Be Discouraged, However, At The Length Of The List Of Possible Causes Of Trouble. He Would Be Indeed An Unlucky Driver That Experienced Repeated Difficulties In Starting And The List Given Is That Of Possible, Not Probable, Causes Of Annoyance And Delay. It Will Arm The Motorist Against What May Happen. Difficulty In Starting–It Has Been Truly Said That A Gasolene Motor Is A Thing Of Freak Notions; It Has Been Known To Be Running Perfectly All One Day And Almost Impossible To Start The Next Morning, Notwithstanding The Fact That Not A Single Piece Of The Mechanism Has Been Disturbed–By Mortal Hand. Yet, Where A Motor Stops Or Fails To Start, Let It Be Known There Is A Cause; The Chief Difficulty For The Beginner—And Sometimes For The Wisest Expert–Is To Locate The Cause, Which, Once Discovered, Is Usually Easily Remedied. Trouble In Starting, Except In Cold Weather, When Atmospheric Conditions Determine Things, Is Usually Traceable To Some Minor Disarrangement And Probably 90 Per Cent Of All Such Troubles May Safely Be Traced Either To The Ignition System Or The Carbureter And Its Very Close Relatives. Aside From The Reasons Here Given For A Motor Failing To Start As The Operator Would Have It, There Have Been Other Reasons And There Will In The Future Be Found Still More. Ordinarily The Operator Who Has Difficulty In Starting His Motor Will Find The Reason Set Forth In The Paragraphs Under This Heading: If The Reason Is Still Remote The Case Will Probably Be A Difficult One And Beyond The Imagination Of Any Man.
