If the pump makes audible ticking and adequate delivery into a jar, but not
into the float chambers when they have been previously emptied, I would
suspect the float valves.  If *that* ticks too but still not when driving,
and still poor running when driving, then it can only be the main jet - or
something else entirely like the ignition.  But as a old mechanic told me
many years ago "You can drive a coach and horses through an SU".  And as is
also said "90% of the problems with SU carbs lie in the ignition".
