Seriously, your in North Carolina, your going to need a choke about 5 times in a year!
Flip the carb upside down and see how far the throttle blades are open, close them until .020 of the transfer slot is exposed (transfer slot will create a very small square when set correctly)
The air mixture screws on the sides of the meetering block set at 1.5 turns out (meaning turn them all the way in then back them out 1.5 turns)
Make sure that all vacuum ports on the carb are blocked off and the port on the intake manifold.
I agree with the earlier statement about finding your vacume leak. (could be the base plate if the intake is an edelbrock with square bore and spread bore bolt patterns)
Take the choke out of the equation, disconnect it electronically and mechanically.
On cold days, pump it twice and start it up!
