1982 Ford Granda morning idle difficulty

1982 Ford Granda morning idle difficulty. Car is 1982 FORD/GRANADA/3.3L L6 1BL OHV. Upon morning start, the car rev's too high (excessive rpm's) and does this for too long and this excessive rev can NOT be coaxed downward in any normal time frame. What causes this? What's the remedy? Thanks in advance for any help.

Check the fast idle and choke linkage. Make sure it's not binding.

Re: 1982 Ford Granda morning idle difficulty

Tbird100636, thanks for suggestion. It seems the linkage is ok. But I am wondering if the flexible, approximately 3 inch duct running from around exhaust manifold up into breather inlet is crucial to normal choke functioning (i.e., engine heat factors into choke functioning) ? That duct fits only loosely and poorly, and therefore cold not effectively convey heat from exhause manifold area into breather and carberetor.
