"Full Throttle"?
I usually start mine at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle, and only pull the choke for a few seconds. They fire almost immediately and I only have to keep holding a little choke if the engine temp is below freezing. Full throttle and no choke will get one going if I get carried away with the choke and flood it.

Obviously the temps from VA to Maine are way different this time of year. It may take a little more choke where you are. When we finally get into Winter here, I put a 300 watt magnetic sump heater on the oil pan for 30 minutes to an hour before even trying. If it's much below zero, I don't know what works, I don't go out there except to get more wood for the stove.
