Have you tried to turn the petcock to 'prime' for a few seconds, and
then back to 'on' before cranking? If it has been sitting in the sun for
at while with a hot engine fuel may have vaporized from the carbs and
left the float height so low that it won't fire until it has been
cranked and new fuel allowed to flow to the carbs. Mine does just that
and I turn it to prime routinely. Could be worth trying.
