in the first video he would have had less of an issue getting it going had he put dummy prop blades on it for some extra mass on the hub.  it would give more inertia to what is essentially the flywheel.  Would have been easier on the inertial starter as well.

Thats more than preservation.  I used to love doing the initial starts on the Global Express with brand new from the factory engines.  They would smoke the place out every time.  That may have been a preserved engine combined with a wet start and it sounded like he was far too early with the fuel.
