1963 Corvette: Service News: Corvette Fuel Injection Cold Starting Procedure

Subject: Corvette Fuel Injection Cold Starting Procedure
Model and Year: 1963 Corvette with Fuel Injection
Source: Chevrolet Service News
Number: Volume 35, Number 6
Date: June 1963

The correct procedure for cold starting a 1963 fuel injection equipped Corvette is as follows:

Depress the accelerator pedal to the floor to index the fast idle cam, then fully release the pedal. With the accelerator pedal remaining fully released, crank the engine until it starts.

The above starting procedure should be brought to the owner’s attention in the dealership.  The 1962 Corvette Owner’s Guide incorrectly states that starting procedures for a fuel injection equipped Corvette are the same as for a carburetor equipped vehicle.
