[DML] Re: Cold running problem and battery

MY guess is that with the weak battery and dirty/corroded connections
the ignition system was having a hard time living with less voltage
than it wanted. The new battery made the problem less noticable but I
believe it is still there. I would clean up all the "big" conections
between the battery and the frame and the starter. Also clean the
connections on the ballast resistor on the firewall. The problem was
less noticable with the old battery once the alternator put a little
cahrge back in after having to start the motor. I do not think it is
really related to the temperature of the motor, just the level of
charge in the battery. The battery is at it's lowest level of charge
immediatly after starting the motor, the alternator hasn't yet had the
time to recharge it so the voltage is at it's lowest point in the
charging cycle.
