The CD carbs have a bi-metallic spring inside them to adjust the richness with temperature.  Many people have disabled this bit, but if the spring gets out of adjustment, it can cause problems.  Also, I have noticed that just letting my JH warm up by idling doesn't get the carbs hot enough to activate the spring.  Adjusting the idle (or the richness) then won't get you to the right place when the car is running on the highway. 

My solution was to just re-adjust the idle on the road after I got the car going.  That seems to have worked pretty well.

The other solution is to pick routes with as little idling as possible....  =)
