I think from memory there is a coloured  disc that fits next to the diaphram on the side,a different colour  for different engine sizes.

I think the wrong colour caused tickover or running faults, i may be wrong,as it was a very long time ago,but i seem to remember 

getting a kit from the dealer & it had different coloured discs in.

I think there are four screws holding the cover on & it is a coloured ring,not a disc.

You can see the diaphram in the middle with the coloured discs.

it´s quite a long time i ran a MK3 Taunus with a VV carb, but if i remember correct it was 2 very little bores at the acc pump that "closed" and therefore caused troubles. ones the carb is serviced properly it´s not as bad as it´s reputation.
