How much choke are you using? I tend to use only about half, maybe a little more when it's cold. Could be that the idle jet is a bit gunked up.

If there are going to be multiple 2CVs at Cholmondeley we need to swap panels around in the ring.

Probably worth checking the choke pull off device functions, this is the odd capsule on the top of the carb which backs off the choke when it’s fully out and the engine is revved. If it doesn’t work not only do you have to push the choke it half way pretty much as soon as it starts you also have a vacuum leak which will cause running issues not dissimilar to those you describe.

Yeah around half. I’ll add idle jet to the checklist. Sounds likely.

There's some great advice above, all I'd add is check plug resistances (esp if NGK) and don't completely rule out a 'Harley' coil if problems reappear.

Totally unrelated, but reminds me that a colleague recently had a meeting at a nature reserve, he was a little concerned as someone else head booked it in as the naturist reserve
