Questions: I have to pour fuel into the carb to start when cold. Jeep also stumbles badly when cold. It seems as though the choke doesn't create enough rich mixture. The accelerator pump is working as I can see fuel come out the nozzle when the throttle opened but the engine will not start even after pumping throttle. I even put a electric pump on thinking the carb was draining after shutting off. Can the solex be adjusted to make it run more rich.

There is an adjustment screw at the base to change the mixture.
