Very interesting.  I would become suspicious of the type lubricant you are 
using in your carb dampers.  May I ask what you use?  Anything other 
than 20W-50 motor oil?  And, back to my concern about proper 
functioning of the centrifugal advance mechanism, could it be that 
there is some type of heavy grease down there?  Something that could 
thicken up in the colder temps?
