/ Pull out the choke, turn on the ignition, step on the starter #1
My first car (1962 Falcon, bought in '67) had a manual choke, everything else had automatic. It had vacuum wipers too as I recall. Getting an automatic choke adjusted just right could be kind of a PITA since you generally had only one chance a day when the engine was cold enough.By the time I started driving most American cars had "automatic" chokes. Floor the accelerator pedal before starting to turn the choke on (and put some raw gas in the carb from the accelerator pump), then after it starts and is somewhat warm, blip the throttle once to let the choke go back to regular position so the idle would drop to normal. Sometimes it would go in steps.
+1 on that!!!!Modern FI works so much better.
