Post Electric choke setup on Edelbrock carb

Can you give the procedure for setting it up? when the car is cold its a instant start. but any other time (even in the middle of the day sitting 4 hours in the shade) , it takes pumping and cranking.

Also, it seems to be stuck open unless I open the throttle up all the way then it will close. Is that right?

I usually place the adjusment screw on the highest step of the choke setting cam and adjust the idle to a speed I like that's not reving the engine too much. I also adjust the choke setting to come off high idle as fast as possible without bogging down the motor. That way it's not reving really high for a long time before dropping down to the next lower step on the choke cam. I think the fast idle screw is adjusted in too far and the fast idle cam is hitting on the fast idle screw that's why you have to press the pedal down so far to get the choke to set. Take a look at the fast idle screw in the morning before you fire the motor up and see where it's hitting and how the choke is operating.

Thanks Chevy1,
How long does the car have to sit before it will be cool enough to check the "COLD" status?

I leave early in the morning and its dark. Should would like to do this in the daylight?
