Thanks cobalt,

I clearly understand your post, there may be a bit of juggling to get it right.

I guess what I need to know is (and this sounds funny comming from a man in his 50s) what is the correct way to start a cold car with a Holley carb?

One shot of accelerator and then pump?
Crank and hold the accelertor in a bit, or pump it slightly.

They both have very different results in terms of what teh initial fast idle will be.

I've been driving fuel injected cars for so long that I forget how we used to do it in the old days....;-)
