One more thing that can help – knowing how to apply throttle when restarting.  I helped someone recently that kept stomping on the gas as if an accelerator pump was there and would get the motor started.  Asked them to just apply 5% gas and leave their foot there and their motor started in about 10 feet of pushing.  Usually there’s a throttle position that works for most carbs but you kind of have to figure it out.  Seems like the PJ carbs can be pretty bad about this…even if it’s not relevant to your situation.
