Question : I AM wondering whether it is normal for a carburetor engine to not start on the first crank when left for a few hours ?

Answer : One common thing with carburetor engines is that when the engine is hot, there is a tendency for the fuel in the carburetor bowl to evaporate and so lower the fuel level in the bowl.

This is OK if the fuel level is set correctly but if it is low in the first place, then it may get too low for good starting after lying idle for a while.

Get a mechanic to adjust the fuel level to the mark on the sight glass on the side of the bowl.
