I have 1966 Mustang with a 289 and am having carb problems. If I the accelerator a few times it will start but only for a few second then die. What could be my problem? I'm not much of a mechanic but am trying to learn

Do you

The choke may not be working. It needs to be completely closed when cold and when it starts, it should be open a little bit to let the motor breathe.
