Stall in gear while weather is cool

hi all,

I had installed a new head on my 72 250, took a while. I rebuilt the carburetor. Fired it up on Sunday, stalled. Tightened the choke and I was on the road.

This morning, weather was a little cool, 65 vs 85 on Sunday, and it took a lot of coaxing to get her running. When I did, putting her in drive or reverse cased her to stall. Let her get to temperature, failed again.

Any idea what may be causing this trouble?
