81 Vette Hard to start

by Mark
(Wilmington , DE)

Just got my 81 Vette , I follow the instructions on starting procedures and always get mixed results in starting the car, very frustrated in getting it to start. I do the 1 pump to floor and release and it will turn over, sometimes. Now , how long should I give it to back off the idle? 30 seconds, 1 minute? And how should I do that? Full pedal depress ? Partial depress? HELP, I love the car, but almost want to sell it...mark
