Any chance there's slop in the choke pivot bushings allowing air to leak past when the choke is on? I've also had cold starting grumpyness caused by a minor vacuume leak and also a coil suffering from old age. When it was the coil, it ran like crap for ten minutes or so then smoothed out, apparently when the coil itself warmed up.

I think it's all in the choke adjustment and the idle mixture....
You guys running used ones or rebuilt ones? Mine was brand new - so maybe that accounts for it?
BTW - we have SOOOOO much snow here - haven't seen this much for 10 years probably!

A couple years ago I bought a lot of 8 carbs on ebay two of them had major slop in throttle pivots. This condition makes it virtually impossible to tune the carb. They could have been fixed with bushings but too much hassle for me so I canibalized them for parts instead.
