My flatty just will not even run if I pull the choke out 1/4 way, cold or not. All depends on altitude, jetting, and the engine. I would never pull it all the way out, tho. Especially after pumping the gas a couple times.

At high altitude (not Ohio) I have often disconnected the linkage to the butterfly so the choke handle just sets a high idle.

Bill, one last thing!

When you go out to start it, You HAVE TO put your left leg out the door, reach around with your left hand and put you left index finger in your right ear and say "I love flatties" six time. Have Terri help you. And when they let you out, come back and tell us if it worked!
