Hi! When the Weather in Boston dips below 60¬į she has a b*tch of a time
Getting going.


Once she is warm after a choky start 3 minutes perhaps 4 minutes. That sweet
267 small block. Starts to gain momentum. And it’s great.

Where do I begin to fix this issue! Thanks Dez

Choke not set correctly, dirty, or carburator could use some cleaning as well... inside the venturies, idle air bleeds(passages) and outside with some carburetor cleaner.

Probably not helpful, but, every gbody, heck, even truck, that I had that was a carb I had to warm it up while parked for a minute or two, giving it *slight* throttle helped speed it up a bit.

Basically, I started it, gave light throttle until the idle went from slight chug/lopey to smooth, then drove. That was every winter in the Berkshires until relocating south.

Not sure if that's what you're experiencing or not, but, it was just a difference between FI and Carb to me. Just chalked it up to winter driving and didn't waste money or fudging settings by the season to alter it

Thanks. That sounds about it.
