My thought is I would add a push button by the ignition switch that kept the ignition off until the engine was cranking at full speed. This prevents kickback. Then I would release the push button and if it did not start apply choke. A good battery is always a good thing. Some of the cheap low cost batteries have very little lead in them. Get the good one.
