Push the kick starter against compression and hold the lever in that position with no pressure on it. Pull the compression release and push the crank about one inch farther. Let go the release, reset the kick crank to the top, and kick through smoothly with the throttle closed.

A video is worth a thousand pictures:

Go to the second sticky at the top of this page. There is a outstanding amount of information there. Near the bottom of that page there is a link to starting a 426. That will get you starting it like a pro. Then read about the decompression cam mod. Do that mod and then you will not need the decompression lever at all.
