Also there is a filter basket that is attached to the fuel input portion of each carb and there is a very small filter that is just ahead of the needle valve for each float of each carb. Remove the needle valve for the floats and you will see the very small filter, If it is clogged, clean it and you should be on your merry way. Same problem with my car and finally traced it down to that. Should only take you 10 to 20 minutes to check and clean both sets of carbs.
Thanks - this also used to happen on my Spitfire, and caused it to misfire on two cylinders.  I once spent an exciting 15 minutes at the side of a French Highway cleaning a filter...

Oh, and it also had a dodgy fuse box as well...!
