I have also checked the vacuum pipes leading to and from the piersburg valve. Although I am not sure wat I was looking for, they all allow air to pass through adequately and the vacuum is present all the way to where the pipe joins the gearbox.

The modulator could well have a split diaphragm
But at least these aren't expensive

I am going to do the filter change and change the oil. If that doesn't work, and there is nothing else I can do, then I will buy a reconditioned unit, have it fitted.

Thanks for your help Andy. Please let me know if you know anybody with a suitable unit.
