1300 engine cuts in 3rd gear?

Quick post as I've not had chance to really check myself yet. Took my 1300 out for the first time yesterday for a spring shake down after Hibernation. Not been used for some time although I start it every month or so. Car starts fine etc. however on acceleration the engine cut our when I went up to 3rd gear?
Seemed fine in 1st and 2nd? I last took it around the block a couple of months ago and it was fine then so I'm guessing something stuck perhaps through lack of use? Any ideas folks?

Any luck with this? I imagine the carburetor is a little dirty?

Sorry for delay in response. Believe it or not when I checked the fuel lines running from the Carb back to the tank - One of the hoses where it met the bulkhead simply came off in my hand! No idea how the hose clip worked loose but it did! The in-line fuel filter looked a bit dirty - now I know why!
