    I can drive below 32 degrees no problem -- are you sure your choke and fast idle settings are correct?

    Ford typically ran a resistance wire to the choke heater (about 10 volts) -- at 13.5 volts you need to add a little more spring tension otherwise it opens up too quickly.

    What do you have attached to your air horn? (Hose opposite the choke pulloff)

    Ported vac to the distributor----PCV valve is connected to port at rear of carb below the choke pulloff---pulling vac for brake booster from a fitting I built into the side of the plenum.

    Ported vacuum is next to the throttle plates.

    I'm talking about this hose:

    If it's the PCV port in the back then that indeed is where it goes:

    Picture made it look like the hose was plugged in here, which is a port out, not in:

    air cleaner is from 65 Mustang 289 engine---several versions from 65-late 60,s--snorkel originally on other side---had to move it, and make a block off plate for original opening---added the pcv connection in the block off plate. Heat when engine is cold from the exhaust stove solved my problem with cold driveability.
