If I go out and start the car every few days, no problem. But, if it sits more than that, the cars engine has to turn over many, many times before it starts. It does not seem like the fuel is getting to the engine in a timely manor. I can hear the electric pump when I turn on the key, so I assume that fuel is getting to the carb. I have to turn over the engine for a least a minute or more. What do you think? Cecil.........

Try waiting until you hear the fuel pump stop ticking before trying to crank the starter and see if that makes a difference. Please report back.

I'd make sure that the choke flap is free. Can you hear it slapping down when you first set it with the accelerator pedal?

Does it sometimes catch and start as you release the key?

Sounds like the problem I had on my SCII,

Try jiggling the choke flap linkage and spray some brake cleaner on it to get it clean.. don't use lubricant on it, it will gum up again.. don't use carb cleaner you'll start a fire 8(

here a picture of the linkage
