Is your fuel lever set to ON/BOTH/L or R? That's an often overlooked item. It has to be on one of the tanks, and not in the OFF position. Then make sure your mixture is full rich. If you did all that, if it just won't work any other way, go into your aircraft.cfg file and look for an entry that says "starter_torque" or something like that (back up your aircraft.cfg file first!!!!). Turn that value up until you get the thing to start. You may have to double or triple that value. Don't go higher than you have to. Give that a try. If it doesn't work, restore your original aircraft.cfg file, but this should work ok for you.
