Cold start

Evening guys,

A newbie to the older cars. Probably been covered somewhere before but cold starts....
I'm used to driving brand new cars so the old HR is difficult.
I struggle to start it when cold and it takes along time.
Any tips?
Choke? Number of pumps of accelerator? Get the carb tuned?

Cheers guys

Hi Guys,
Just after some advice. I have a 308 HQ coupe and I'm just about to get a rebuild. however, Im looking for some different set ups or combinations. At the moment I'm running a standard 308 with a M21 gearbox and the large Salisbury diff. I hope to keep the gearbox and diff and just rebuild the engine with ..... any suggestions ??? looking for a turn key cruiser with a little bit of grunt nothing to out there or expensive. Any help would be helpful.
a mate told me to get rebuild it with a
-286 crane cam
-600 Holley
-ACL Flat top pistons 10/1 comp
-ACL race series head gaskets
-ported and polished heads
All balanced
that's it, I think the cam will be too much for the M21 gear box. but I'm no expert.
