well I set the fuel pressure going to the carb at 5psi and no change. But I noticed something and its got me thinking...is there any way that this problem could be caused by cold weather?

Ever since I've had this engine and trans combo I've never driven this truck past mid november. I've always parked it for winters so all tuning was done in summer weather. Last night it was 47 degrees here and the truck would die idling in gear after about 40-50 seconds (at operating temp). tonight it was 36 degrees and after having some trouble starting it at this temp it only idled for about 10-15 seconds in gear (at operating temp). Can cold weather have this effect or am I just being hopeful?
