Re: Cold weather hard starting solution?

Uh, interesting...

The 914/6 (914 with a six cylinder Weber carbed 911 engine -- a fun and fast way
to die!) came with a "throttle lever" that was mounted on the transmission 
tunnel, next to the shifter, driver's side.  Pulling up on it would cause it to 
pull on the gas pedal just a little bit, kinda like a 'ghost foot' pushing on 
the gas pedal to keep the idle up until the engine warmed up.  Basically it's 
just a manual choke.  But I think it would be less, uhm, hassle than the propane
method and wouldn't require the driver to keep their foot on the gas pedal as 
the engine warms up.  It's something I'm contemplating for my baby.

Hey all,

I'm running dual Weber 34ict's on my 'back, and those of you with them will know
 what I mean when I say that starting/warming up in really cold weather is a rit
ual.  I've pondered ways to overcome the "no choke" problem that didn't involve
dumping more gas into the motor...
