Pity nobody has replied before. Have only just come back to this forum after a break. I would strongly suspect the fuel pump, which may have its internal membrane/filter blocked partially. Doesn't cost much for new one though fitting is fiddly. Try taking off the rubber pipe from the fuel filter to the carb and turn engine over to see if fuel comes through evenly ( taking app precaautions about what happens to the petrol.
The only other thing is whether there is something blocking in a carb jet, but I am not a wizz at carbs.
Other source of advice would be the Yahoo message borad devoted to 2CVs which has masses of experts on it, and it is easy to register. The home page ofr this is
