not start...cold running problem

cold running problem:

'74, CIS, stock, hand throttle (functional)...it's winter in arkansas, so that means we're seeing 20's - 50's right now...car starts fine, but driveability can be poor, usually at intermediate throttle...it will just start bucking away until i give it more gas...once it's warm, it runs pretty well.

i checked and reset my points to .35 mm and it has improved, but occasionally the bucking gets going as i'm slowing down to a stop, even at operating temp (180). i want to try adjusting my mixture, but i need to hacksaw the adjustment tool to fit underneath...

any thoughts?
