Try this: remove the air filter cover and the foam filter. you should be able to see the inside of the carb. Toggle the choke lever and you'll see a brass flap close over the carb throat. open the choke and the flap moves so air can pass into the carb.. When choke is on, the flap must complete close and seet over the throat to effectively function. If seeting does not occur the air moves though carb and prevent cold start. If you see that the flap does not seet you need to note the area that is preventing complete closure. Once you know this just remove the flap (usually a small screw hold it to the toggel switch) from the carb. Use a small file to revome the area that is preventing full closure and reattach the flap. (go slow so that you do not remove too much of the flap; if needs to seet well for the function to be restored). After you reattach the flap toggle the switch to assure proper seeting. If you see good and complete closure you are ready to cover the air cleaner and start. 8-12 pumps on the bulb, full choke on the carb and 3-5 pull should be all that is required. One final note: before reinstalling the brass cab flap, clean it with paper towel so no shavings are pulled into the engine cylinder.
Hope this helps,
