This is for the guys that give the car a few pumps with the accelerator before firing when cold.
Next time give it a few pumps and then put on the seat belt. Give it a bit of time after pumping.
I give mine a few pumps and then close the side bar and install the 5 point.
This is sufficient time for the gas to vaporize in the motor and the startup is alot faster and less cranking.:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Ive been doing that since I bought mine. Its the perfect amount of time to strap in the lap belt and fire her up.

If it's below 30* at home, I don't bother to try and start my Vette. I can darn near drop a beer can down the carb, and there's no choke. If I did get it started, it does make plenty of heat.

That's always been the method for starting a roots blown motor...no reason it won't work on others.
I don't know about the fuel "vaporizing" unless by that you mean it has time to disperse throughout the intake, I'll buy that :D
