Thanks, I kind of understood some of it.

I just fired up one of my K301 and it did the same thing. So, I think it is a temperature issue.

I inspected the carb a second time. Looks like someone might have made the small holes in the sides larger when they were cleaning it before.

There are no adjustments on the carb. There is a brass plug on the top of carb, nothing adjustable.

It runs fine after 5 minutes of idling.

I made up this setup in about 2 1/2hrs,it's not pretty but it works to cure iceing problem,for 3 yrs I've been telling myself I'll make someting better looking & this setup just keeps on working.Same was made from whatever I had on hand(1" copper pipe & fittings)the 1/2" partical board spacer is for choke plate clearance.

Looks good to me. I might try something similar if running the engine is a hassle this winter. Thanks for pics.

This pipe setup was actually made 5 yrs ago for a tecumseh hh100 eng,the spacer plate was added for choke plate clearance & also as a simple way to mount pipe on kohler carb due to fact carb larger than tecumseh carb as steel plate that 90 deg elbow brazed to was made to mount directly on tecumseh carb useing air cleaner backplate screws,also at angle pic taken you can't see that the 45 deg elbow is actually about 1/2" away from muffler shell & about 1" off pipe,you just want to heat air to about 70-100 deg so as not to cause a lean hi-speed mixture/vapor lock by overheating carb body,if I were to make a new pipe I would make a lighter setup out of aluminum pipe/fittings & shorten up pipe to reduce wt on carb mount & just pull heat off pipe rather than pipe/muffler.
