The Weber DCOE's have an enrichening circuit in place of a choke.  These circuits often get plugged on the Webers.  They draw fuel from the bottom of the bowl and any varnish or other contamination wants to settle there.  Kurt's suggestion for starting works fine. 

Chokes richen the mixture by restricting the air and enricheners do it by supplying more fuel.  General discussion is that the Lotus 907 and the Webers are not a good combination.  I have Webers on mine and I have not been able to get the progeression as smooth as I would like but, it is very drivable.
