Changed the oil today fully. I drained the oil reservoir and the crankcase like it said to, and then changed the oil filter. I put the correct amount of oil in right on the dot. I ran a few times and it was great. Now I let it sit for an hour and a half and it won't start!!!! It keeps making this loud knocking sound. It's still getting back pressure though. It is below 40 degrees though, could that just be the problem? I have the choke out and everything. Please watch the attached video

Probably should've checked this earlier, but there's no gas. Did I ever mention how smooth i am?

I filled the oil reservoir. That's the only spot that the manual said you could fill it. I ran it after I changed the oil twice for a good amount of time though. I have no idea what's wrong with it.

Technically you shouldn't have to do this on a Predator...

There is a vent hose on the top of the oil tank, pinch it off about 2 inches from the tank run the engine for about 5-10seconds turn it off then release the hose you should hear the sound of air (rushing) when you remove the pliers from the hose, and its primed..........
