    Bend the linkage. If it doesn't have enough to kick up to high idle then you bend the linkage coming out of the stove on the intake. If it's getting on the high idle then you bend the rod going up to the choke plate.
    Do this in the morning with a stone cold engine. You want the choke plate Just barly closed. When you start it right away it should pull open to about 1/8 inch. in five minutes it should be close to fully open.
    Personnaly I go sick of fiddling with that style. I found a rebuildable hot air style choke carb and converted it to electric....SO much better.

    I'm damn near sick of it also. When i try and start it when its stone cold, or even in the middle of summer in the mornings, i play hell with trying to keep it running for aobut a minute, then it runs.
