I've got so used to parking it downhill it's not been a problem, but I suspect it would still not start if I parked nose up.
Sorry not much help.
I also changed filter and check valve on top of it but no change when I did it in December.
If you do find a cure please update.
I live in Thames...
I'll have to check the weekend. I took top engine cover off today but couldn't really see much under tandem pump.
Ill get the inspection mirrors and torch out.
The vacuum side is oily, but I think they all are from what I've read.
I lifted bench to listen and when put ignition on I heard the swhoosh.

I'm a bit weary of taking pillar and lining off because of curtain airbags.
I have rain coming in and tracking down to the passenger footwell. Any had similar, I don't think its the plenum grommets problem.
