Peter,
        Put a spare spark plug in the end of the wire then put it on/close to
ground. 
        Concerning the fuel flow in your carbs, these tubes in question are
discharge arms. They supply a heavier flow of gas into the venturi part of the
carb during normal running or acceleration. The connecting rod between the
carbs may neeed adjusting or the pump diaphragm may need to be replaced as you
mentioned. As an after thought disconnect the connecting rod & operate the
carbs individually by hand. Is the fuel flow equal in both carbs or is there
no differance as if the rod was still attached? Dirt maybe? Carb rebuild kit?
Just some thoughts to consider.
