Perhaps you want to use your classic in the coming winter period? Starting should not be a problem. As a classic owner you of course let the engine warm up before turning away (...) in the rushing traffic. How often have you been told that it is not wise at all to warm things up like this? 'Men' think that you should immediately drive away, because otherwise excessive wear will occur ... 'People' think that this is because running on the choke gives too much gasoline so that the necessary oil is flushed off the cylinder walls ... Is your classic - for example - equipped with one or more SU of Zenith carburetors, then it is a matter of pulling the choke knob all the way out and starting. Then - if the engine runs smoothly and that is almost immediately with the correct adjustment of the contact points and time - you push the choke in slowly. Of such carburetors namely, through the choke also have the ability to run at a higher idle speed without the choke actually being used. Once the stuff is up to temperature, the button can be pushed in completely.
