okay, i've waited patiently for books to arrive (via some slow
boat) and now i'm out of patience, so:
what is the "correct" starting procedure for a circ 1971 high
compression 1800 engine with dual SUs and manual choke..
i mean an "old" habit is once to the floor with the throttle and
then release, before turning the key--but, that was to set the
automatic choke--since there are none, need i continue that?
i mean, at about 70 degrees F. and an engine 24 or more hours
"cold" would you say:
half choke and don't touch the throttle until ready to move, OR
full choke and "goose" the throttle as soon at it fires, OR
no choke and "some" throttle, OR . . .
i guess i could experiment, but so far everything i've tried has
been unsuccessful--and, after too long trying i resort to a shot of
"diesel starting fluid" into each SU inlet...then, purr..
