I'd suspect it is gummed up. A temporary and inexpensive fix is to spray carburetor cleaner into it, to see if that will help.
(If it an electric choke, check to see you have voltage to the heat element when the truck is cold and the key is on.)
Bad news #1 is, today's carburetor cleaners ar pretty weak because of emissions laws, and #2, you probably should take the carburetor or air horn off and tear the carburetor or air horn apart so you can clean it good.
If you do so, be sure to have a new gasket kit available to you so you don't wind up with air/vacuum leaks.

I have a 1984 Nissan/datsun 4X4. Will not Idle properly, just dies if not constantly given gas. Sometimes has problem starting. Any ideas?

The throttle/choke adjustment would correct this. If adjusting this does not make a difference then the carb will need to be rebuilt/replaced.

1985 Nissan 720 ext. cab pickup problem

You need to adjust the automatic choke. Your choke may not be opening fully. There is a fast idle cam linked to the choke to keep the throttle open more until the engine is warm. The idle mixture screw is part 37 in the picture, but get the choke adjusted right first, and you may not have to adjust the mixture screw. See adjustment procedures at link beloe.

My 89 toyota pickup starts hard after runing for awhile

hi, sounds like it is being effected by heat, often a spark module will degrade when it gets hot so the problem may be intermitent, they are often not to expencive so you can either replace it and see how it goes or test it but i would advise that a mechanic tests it as you are dealing with fatal amounts of current..

Choking in the morning and after rain, but it is gone after driving for 10 minutes

Pour a little water around the base of the coil while running and if engine stops running thats the problem.Coils tend to get small cracks that moisture gets into.Caused by engine heat and its own high operating temp.
