Does anybody know if the tick over speed can be increased with the choke on when the engine is cold ? With a cold engine the tick over is very slow and I have to increase the tick over by opening the accelerator a little or the engine stalls. Tried the choke in many positions but still not idle fast enough not to stall.

Any ideas of any treeks to sort it ?

Have you tried to set the idle speed correctly once hot?. In theory if that's done (at 1000-1050 rpm or so), then the cold start device should sustain a reasonable idling speed when cold.

There's the possibility of blocked choke jets or associated air ways in the cold-start gear, of course.

The hot idle is spot on 1000 / 1050
The chock does seem to enrich the mixture because when I leave it running in the garage the air is heavy with rich fumes and the idle speed actually goes down and begins to stall and eventually will stall as the engine warms a little.
