Engine 3 starts fine. But, using the procedure as outlined in the manual I can't get engine 4 started (engine select #4, #4 fuel pump on, #4 magneto to both, primed, hit starter switch), it rotates the propeller but does not start.

Thoughts?

If you've shut down by moving the fuel control switch lever to cut-off or by pressing Ctrl+Shift+F1 and Shift+M:
Leave all the other switches and levers alone and just keep pressing Ctrl+E until engine 1 fires.
Do this with the other 3 engines in turn until all 4 are running again.
The other switches and levers will re-set themselves automatically.
