Subject: Hard Starting 900T

My '92 900T has started to be problematic at start-up. When I first start it, it cranks over real strong, and sounds like it isn't getting any gas. This can take up to 15 secs. Then it roars to life, rough-idles at about 1,500rpm, then dies. All the while belching a whiteish-blue smoke. The second time starting, usually isn't so painful. The smoke smells like a mix of gas and paint thinner. I took it to a local place, and they said that the starter and alternator were good, but the battery was weak, so I put a new one in today. No better. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Scott McFarland
