hi all wonder if anyone could advise on course of action .Have a 79 coupe ,starts ok but needs revs  at first to avoid cutting out. after maybe 2 to3 mins revs start to climb to normal choke level  and kicks off as norm when engine warm ,does this point to any particular part on the auto choke or can anyone suggest way to go.

When cold,  are you sure the choke flap is closing completely ?  If not, adjust the movement by slackening off the three screws holding the auto mechanism and moving to the left.

My car has similar symptoms but only when very cold or damp.

i read an article by Andrew Cliffe at Omicron:

"Most Betas are fitted with automatic chokes in the carburettor, which need to be activated with two presses of the pedal before you start the (cold) engine. Now, I know this sounds like a stupid answer, but I thought there was something wrong with my first HPE until I discovered this advice in the owners manual, and I know of at least one person who's bought a Beta sold cheap due to non-existent 'cold-starting problems' because the previous owner didn't know this. If you're already doing this before starting the car, you'll have to try another approach....."

anyone else heard of this?
