My 450 started right up on the first kick too and it idled great. Unfortunately it didn't run very well with only 60 psi in one and 130 psi in the other. I did not have good luck using the electric started when checking compression. Try kicking it over about 5 or 6 times and see if there is a difference.WOZERD said:Just what I need-- more money for a new guage.

Maybe I need a new guage?
My last 450 rebuild is showing 182....
All three start right up!
