"NEUTRAL" position. Follow Step B above then proceed as follows. Lock parking brake. Turn ignition key to the "ON" position; pull recoil handle slowly until you feel mechanism engage, then pull through firmly and rapidly (this provides faster starting and prevents possibility of kickback which could result in injury to the operator).
