You need to have the brake pedal to crank the engine.

What is the problem you have with starting?

Thank you. It did work. I had to press the clutch pedal all the way down, completely down to be able to start the engine and then in releasing the handbrake, I had to pull the handbrake up slightly before pressing the knob and then pressing the lever down. I got all this in the manual. Thank you.
