The choke has a thermostat spring that keeps it closed until it warms up.
Its possible you have a bad relay or other electrical part that is causing the ignition system to loose power.

It sounds like your automatic choke linkage is not working proparly or out of adjustment. It could just be very dirty and oily. You can spray WD40 around the linkages on the carborator and work them back and forth by hand to see if they are moving freely. If they were very stiff at first and then after you sprayed them and moved them around they feel like they work much easier then it was likely just dirty.

Starts when turn key but turns off when key is released


Replace the ignition barrel. Inside is a lot of switches that wear out. It could also be the starter relay. Although this is least likely.

Bronco Wont Start (help please)


Check for timing gear problems. They have plastic teeth on the cam shaft gear which will shatter causing it to jump time.
