Cold Start Valve , I would guess.
They do seize up tho - and note, he has been priming the engine via air plate before startup. The CSV would do this more effectively, presuming it is working - firing a spray of fuel in the manifold throat at crank over. Better than pushing the airplate down before crankover.
Still worth checking I think- given start up is a problem. It would be simple if not so hard to get at. At cold crankover could see if the thermo switch is sending any power, first. Might be easier. If it is not sending power, then need to see if timed out on temp, or faulty. If is sending power, then need to see if valve can actually respond. My was rusted stuck shut.
