Question about 1984 Dodge Ram 50
Can pour little gas in top of carb and car starts fine when cold...otherwise is very difficult to start cold.....starts fine when warm
It sounds like the choke isn't closing on the carburetor when the engine is cold ( more gas, less air). normally step on gas pedal once to close choke before starting. need to find someone familiar with carburetors to help as it can be technical setting it up

Try replacing the Idle Air Controller. These cars have a seperate air source for Idle and throttled operation. That is why you have to keep your foot on the gas to keep it running.
