Re: Engine start up problem
With a Holley carb and having an electric choke, as said, loosen the three screws clamping the black cap so when the engine does start cold, after giving it one full stroke to the floor to allow the choke plate to close, if not rotate cap to close, and fast idle weight/cam should come into play and fast idle would be 1400-1600 rpm.
Once engine starts, rotate cap to RICH side or LEAN side, to smooth the engine out. It should run by itself. It may take another cold morning to adjust.
On the cap there is a mark to match against a scale on the body, usually, no more than two marks either way is good, but engine will tell you what it needs to run smooth.
You must make sure as you rotate cap, plate rotates with it. if not, remove cap and make sure pin is inserted into cap bi-metal spring to pull it on-off.
