It sounds as if the L/H enrichment/choke piston isn't seating properly or that the rubber in the piston is damaged. Have you got the recommended (4mm) slack in the cable which operates the L/H choke. Sometimes the piston sticks if there is any corrosion in the bore that the piston operates in. Any water getting down there can cause the problem, hence the rubber boot on the cable. I always put a drop of engine oil on the choke piston.
It's worth checking that the pilot jet is the correct size which is 45.
