#1 Hard starting whe cold

Post by Jetjock17 » Fri Sep 21, 2018 4:54 am

Once running the engine runs great and starts immediately when warm. Once cold however, it needs a lot of cranking with full choke before firing and running on one or two cylinders before finally picking up and responding to the throttle. Adjusted the choke cables but no improvement. Ideas?

Lots of previous discussions on this. Worth searching the forum.
Series 1 FHC purchased 40 years ago when I was young. Sold
Series 1 2+2 when the kids were small now sold
Series 1.5 OTS in opalescent maroon, Californian car. My retirement present.
