Further to my previous message. I was in Jerusalem today and went to speak
to someone called Anatoly who runs a garage that specialises in VWs. He is
extremely knowledgable, and I would say that his is the only garage in my
part of the country that I would trust to work on my car. He often turns up
at our club meetings in his 1969 bus.

Anyway, I explained my problem to him and he actually suggested the above
solution without me mentioning it, as more likely than a leak in the carbs
or the fuel pump. It was his first suggestion, and he considers it far more
likely than any leak.

What do you think?
