The setup I mentioned and is used for Rotax engines for example is one action, a spring holds permanently the valve closed, by pulling the lever you open the the valve, when you loose grip to the lever the valve will automatical close again. Isn't this much more comfertable and easier to use?
AHH! I understand what you were referring to. You are misunderstanding how the valve works. It closes by itself once the engine fires (or you release the lever while kicking) From the compression/combustion pressure. Pulling the lever opens the valve.

I only manually closed it in the video to show it's operation.
