Gentleman I have several engines in my collection that display similar symptoms and despite lots of fiddling I have come to the conclusion that the fuel we buy today is designed for modern fuel injection and not primitive carburettor systems so some adjustments need to be made to float height etc as modern fuel systems are under pressure not atmospheric anymore

I doubt very much if the viscosity of the fuel today is any different to what it was 40 years ago.
