Have to say I agree with previous comments, I had trouble with my pierburg but after a bit of research and some replacement bits. it's pretty good. Is yours a 2e2 or 2e3?

I have some annotated digital photos of some work I did on it somewhere I think if you're interested. The Haynes Carburrettor Manual is not a bad book at all and was the source of most of my info ( I borrowed it from the local library for about a year! The Haynes info in the tranposrter worshop book is a bit limited though.

Cheers
