Sounds like the mixture is way off. Seems the choke is the only thing keeping it alive when cold.

Stripped pipe clamps on DP seals, or cracked DP seals.
My '72 did it all the time untill I put real Radiator hose clamps on it.
Thanks,

Ok I'll look for that. How often do you all have to change the manifold boots?

You shouldnt have to change them often at all. Biggest problem is getting them sealed right the first time. Did this start happening all of a sudden?

When you say warm up do you mean when the choke cuts off? If so make sure the Air Solenoid has not burned out. The round thing on the side of the carb with a wire going to it. Turn the key on and go to the carb and unplug that wire and touch it back to the same terminal. If the solenoid clicks it is good, if not it is open and needs to be replaced.

Did you check that cut off valve Bob was talking about? Turn the key to On, unplug the wire coming from the left side of the carb. Touch the wire back to the terminal. You should hear it click 10 out of 10 times.
