Question about 2006 Jaguar XK-Series
Your problem is more likely a distributor-timing problem, than a carburator problem. The richness of the fuel acts like a constant choke, and the car runs fine until it warms up.
Once the car is warm, try manually advancing the spark. If that helps, then take the distributor to a repair shop that can tell you if the vacuum advance is working properly.
Remember, the spark must be +10 degrees advanced when cold.
