cold start with mc2100 question
So with all the help I have received from everyone the jeep is running very well with the new carb... except when cold. When I first start the jeep it turns over and starts but the ideal is only around 450-500 rpm (and than around 650 when warmed up) I have a manual choke that I just installed I have also made sure its working correctly, but there is no change in the rpm if the choke is open or closed. Is there some kind of adjustment on the carb that I'm missing on the choke side of the carb???

ok I see the fast ideal cam and I closed the choke and made the adjustment and with the choke closed I set it to 1000 rpm. I opened the choke and gave the jeep a little gas and the rpm went down to 650. So that worked but when i closed the choke and started the jeep again it seems like the choke won't close enough to engage the part of the fast ideal cam the steps up the rpms. Im not sure what I'm doing wrong
You have to press the pedal to the floor, pull the choke, then release the pedal if you want to engage the high idle with a manual choke.

You also want the fast idle rpm to be about 1800. That makes the next step down about 1200-1300 and then idle.
