    You might have a slight exhaust leak causing your popping at idle. The hard start may be a result of the weather. Your starting procedures are going to change a little on a manual choke vehicle.
    How did you change the wiring on the idle solinoid? Is the wire hot on crank? Or just on ignition. To be honest, I don't remember what it's supposed to be.
