As one last check on the Solex carb, have you undone the 4 screws which hold the float chamber section to the rest of the carb? This joint is vertical. (I don't have a bi-starter carb here at present so that description is from memory). When you remove these 4 screws, you should be able to see the passage which takes fuel into the bi-starter. There is a hole in the gasket corresponding to this passage. Could the gasket be fitted such as to block this passage? I do emphasise that I am working from memory here, but it is worth a quick check. Presumably the errant silicone could also have got into this passage?
