Hello, I recently bought a 1972 Mustang
coupe with a 351 cleveland V8 2bbl (new engine, 80,000 miles on it). It drives fine, the only thing is it has trouble starting in cold weather. I do body/interior work, but I know very little about engines. I drive the car on average once a day. I talked to my mechanic, he told me how to start it properly (don't keep pumping the gas, you'll just flood the carbuerator). Plus I just got a new ignition, with the battery churning out 14.7. Alternator is fine, the car starts good in some weather, but why does it struggle in the cold?
