Kinda hard to remember been a while now. I did it by the book and verified it with a HEGO kit. I never considered it a problem since the manual suggest stomping on the pedal. Thats of course only on the first try of the day. Since the choke is open and out of the equation.

Iv'e never had to pump the gas on any carbed car or truck I've owned.

My 67 fires instantly without a pump hot or cold (assuming you don't count setting the choke plate a pump)

Given the topic of the post, a simple actuator will set the choke plate for automatic start. This system has a pulsed output preignition that will work nicely.

You are very fortunate. This is the only carbed car I have ever owned. I am sick of it and hoping one day I switch it over to efi. Starting the first time is a bitch for me (2 pumps or nothing), and a motherflucker (4 or 5 pumps and maybe 2 tries) if I let it site for a couple of weeks. After reading the service manual and owners manual a few times. It seems that its perfectly normal. If its not, let me know and I will burn these books.

Well after a couple weeks yes any carbed car will need to refill the bowls. They evaporate pretty quick. I'm strictly talking within the same week.

I have owned a lot of cars and trucks with carbs if the carb is tuned right and no leaks they always start right up.If you let a carb sit for a while you need to prime it with a tiny bit of gas it will fire the first time.The reason i don't lock mine is my radio is cheaper to replace then a window and these cars are way to easy to steal ill let insurance cover it if its stolen.

I'm afraid that you do. It is not possible to set the automatic choke without moving the accelerator pump piston and squirting a little fuel, assuming that things are in somewhere near proper adjustment.

Will the actuator let the choke plate "unload" to a partial choke position? You don't want to be driving around on full choke.
