I left the house at 0420 this morning. air temp 34 F, 1 C, humidity 96 %, dew point temperature 32 F .
I have about 2 miles of surface streets before I get on an urban expressway, Interstate 10 .
I made all the traffic lights when I got on the entrance ramp to the expressway, I tried to open the throttle, it was stuck, the engine started to run rough .
Had this happen about 25 years ago, same weather conditions, I turned the kill switch off momentarily I got the usual muffled boom when the switch was turned back on, the throttle was normal and the engine was running like it should .
Looks like I had carburetor ice .
