Hi Dave,

 Do you leave it at full choke after it starts?  After my B starts, I
push the choke knob back in until it runs a bit raggedly, then pull it
out a bit until it smooths out.  That's where I leave it until it speeds
'way up, then push it back in a bit more, keep this up until the knob is
all the way in.  Don't usually drive it 'til it's off the choke.
