Default couple questions

1 when i start my sammie in the extreme cold(1.3 stock carb) it runs horrible spits and spudders and smokes unless i wedge the choke open a little bit, then i clears up and runs wonderful, but i left the choke wedged open a little and tried the next morning and it took forever to start but once started ran great. any ideas?

2 i just picked up an 88 jeep cherokee for 400 bucks because it has coils in the front, rancho suspension and 3.73 detroit lockers front and rear, is there a way and what all would it involve to put those axels under my samurai, even if i dont use the coils

probably need to clean your carburetor and linkages. Make sure your vacuum lines are all connected to the right places and not leaking. If you haven't replaced the distributor cap and rotor in a while, you should look at that. If everything else is in order then you should try adjusting your cold idle and dialing in your carburetor.

no matter what your carb engines will always start harder in the cold. It just takes a lil pumping the gas, and you might need to keep the rpm's up a lil bit 4 a min till it warms up.

a couple extra cranks to start it in the cold maybe, but shouldn't ever spit and sputter and you should never have to wedge the choke open when it's cold. If everything else on the engine is in tune but your carb is out of tune, then it sounds like the cold idle mixture is too rich.

Since wedging the choke open the second time didn't work, it leads me to believe that something else on the engine is out of tune and it probably isn't the carb. It may have just been a coincidence that it started up the first time you wedged the choke open. Don't try and tune the carb untill you are certain everything else is dialed in.
