   The starting drill on my '96 R11RT (not quite Beta) is to always hold
the throttle AND the fast idle lever full closed during cranking.  As soon
as the engine catches (usually in about two revolutions) I open the fast
idle to get about 1,500 RPM.  This has worked for me.  I also always
keep the clutch disengaged during cranking and I run Mobil 1 15-50.
