cold start issue

It seems like the motor isn't getting enough gas on start up. The motor will start to run, but if I don't push the gas pedal down slightly and hold it there, it will die. After about 5 minutes or so, it will idle on it's own. Not sure what to look for.
The motor was completely rebuilt in '09 by Jerry Woods. The motor has about 9,000 miles on it. The car lives in a heated garage. Suggestions would be appreciated.
