Hello, I have a Datsun Safari 1985 2.8 petrol witch I use for hunting in the winter. The problem is it would not ( or bearly )start in the cold mornings. Keep in mind the battery and starter is brand new and with the electric feulpump there is no shortage of feul to the carb. Please assits me.

Check fuel pressure. The oil being clean and the correct viscosity is critical to cold starting as well.

Hopefully, the battery capacity is correct as well.

Thanks Roy, the battery is a new 675 and the electric feul pump pumps like hell. The oil is also drained and refill to specifications.
Isent their something in the carb that might me blocked or broken. Once it starts it runs like a brand new one. Anything else that you can add to the problem. Thanks again
