Re: Another (stupid?) outboard motor question
IMHO 'cold' means cold air, not cold engine. I try for a start without choke, then choke if it doesn't start.
Actually the fuel in the air condenses against the cold cylinder walls and this results in a very lean air -fuel mixture.
So we richen it up with the choke.
