Ah spoke too soon, it wasn’t air/fuel mixture on the adjuster but it was air/fuel mixture issue. The choke flap was not opening despite the engine being hot, so running very rich. So adjusted bi-metallic spring and it fires up nicely now. I’m confident this was the issue.

Spring latching loop should be at 5 o’clock not 1 o’clock when hot.
