Trash in the jets? I don't know if SUs would react the same but I have had
Solex carbs do this from trash in the jets.

Subject: [Mgs] MGA sputtering engine

As usual, I am mystified by my MGA.  On a recent trip, it began to 
sputter and die.  I could start it again, and go a short distance by 
pumping the gas pedal in unison with its dieing sputters.  Now the car 
will only intermittently start.  If I rev the engine and hold the gas 
pedal constant, the engine will run rough for a few seconds and then the 
revs will drop steadily until it dies.
