Sorry for the confusion, It's not the bi-metal I'm writing about. A while back I bought a new Q jet for a 350 69 Caprice. The minute I shut the car off and try to start it later, it would shudder and smoke at tail pipe and smell of gas. It started fine when it was cold. It had that little coil spring . I grab a needle nose and removed it. My old Q jet did not have that spring so the choke would stay open when the motor was hot. It would start up right away. A friend cross the street had the same thing his Chevy 2 barrel dual jet, and could not start it once it was hot. He also removed the spring when I told him. After that it started with no problem.
