Hi Dave

Many thanks for your reply. I didn’t actually rebuild the carb myself. I sent it away and had it rebuilt by a specialist. I didn’t consider the carburettor because the car has had this fault since we bought it three years ago.  I recently purchased a box of carbs, rebuild kits,  gaskets and a large box of other  pieces from a former Somerset owner, so rather than mess about sending the carburettor back to the company who rebuilt it, I will replace the emulsion block gasket myself and see what happens.

Thanks again for your help and advice.
