the trucks hates cold starts now. is my timing advanced touch to much or do i just need to rebuild carb? timing set at 10 BTD. also i did add the resisitor before coil so i don't destroy another one. maybe i need to bypass it during start up?

What does it do on cold start? Long crank time? Slow cranking? Crank and grunt?

@ about a 70 degree cold start it turns right over no pedal pumping
@60 takes lomg crank time normally requiring slight pedal pump
@50 starts getting scary
@40 no way in heck will you get it to crank over. no slow cranking no grunts just over and over and over.

Is the choke working on the carb?
