You press the gas pedal down then pull the choke . It has a idle cam that holds the throttle open more untill it is released pushing in. Do it slowly as it warms up. Cold temp cam setting I keep 1500-1800rpm. Hot temp choke 1200rpm. When it is cold the cable maybe though so manually press the gas pedal down, use the choke line to hold it.
A electric , turn keyon. Pump pedal to set choke idle cam. A second wot pump will release the hhigh idle cam.
Got it? P or N on a auto should go. Manual clutch down N.

And this may be a really dumb question, but I do need to leave my truck in park when starting it right? Not neutral?

|vinniekq2||The owner usually learns what his particular car likes. My last manual choke car liked full choke,3 full shots from gas pedal,crank until it fires and push cable in slightly. keep foot on gas for a few seconds to maintain RPMs and push cable all the way in over about 30-40 seconds. start driving and good to go. in 1-2 minutes smooth|

Edelbrock 650 Manual Choke
On my 82 GMC Sierra with a built 350, it has a Edelbrock 650 carb with a manual choke and pull out cable.
I have a hard time getting the truck to start when its been sitting a while, what is the proper way to go about starting this truck with the manual choke cable?
Would an electric choke be a good investment?
The truck runs great once up and going, I just don't like having to start it over and over again, and i've heard its bad to do this on a vehicle with a large cam especially.
