Fuel supply problems

I've fitted a set of WH carbs on my 2ltr V6, ticks over a treat.
Put it into gear and push the "loud" peddle, the engine splutters & dies!
The only way I can get going is by keep pushing the enrichment button. Even then it's not happy to keep going. Running at about 5000rpm, if I lift & go again, it splutters.

Now, I've tried running with the fuel filler cap off to see if I have a blockage in the tank, this don't help. The Primer bulb used to collapse before, is this because I had fitted a "Micky Mouse" one and not the pucker Merc item, or a possable blockage?

Could the fuel pump be faulty? Worked OK before on the WMH carbs!

Anyone got any clues as to what jet sizes I should have fitted? The V6 is a 135hp fitted with an XR2 tuner and holes drilled in the lower leg.
All this ran well on the old carbs.

Any clues lads?

Well at least we know it due to the "offset" then.
