As you know, I run a road demon jr. and it runs like crap when the engine is cold, always runs super rich and will only stay running if I keep the rpms to around 1200 or better, it doesn`t have a choke, and a choke would likely only compound the problem. I`ve just lived with it even so I could live without it. When I drop in the new engine i`m going back to a Q-jet, I don`t like the downleg boosters on the primary side of the demon, it`s been a great carb other than that though. The only time it`ll start with the engine cold and idle fine is when the car has sat in the sun in 90 degree temps.
