    472 hard to start

    hey everyone.

    My hearse is having a hard time starting when the engine is cold, but once warm it starts right up and runs fine. Can anyone list some things that could be causing this? I know there's probably several I just want to get pointed in the right direction. Thanks for any help.

    The first thing I would do, when its cold, is take off the top of the air cleaner then depress the gas petal and see if the choke closes.. It should have been open all the way before touching the gas..If all is good so far, start it up and watch if the choke pull off opens the choke a little bit... I'm guessing something won't be right...
