I've endured this long enough and must get to the bottom of it. Have a hell of a time starting in the morning....cranking and pumping the gas....and once it catches, I must keep on the gas for about a minute before stepping off the pedal. Then the car must warm up for another 3 minutes before I drive, if I dont wait it stalls once I press on the gas. the funny thing is, is that it drives beautifully when warm......and even starts ok with a warm engine. Assuming that the float level is ok....where else should I look? Battery and alt are maintaining proper voltage.

Its an 84 gl wagon 4wd automatic and carbed.
