Prop load does have an effect on the mix. You need to retune for each prop, as the revs will be different, so will the peak mix.

Thanks for all the input guys! Much appreciated. I'll take it step by step and see what I can come up with.

Question though - in my original post, I indicated that the engine ran for longer before cutting out once I fitted a smaller diameter prop. without a carb adjustment, does this have the effect of a richer mix ?

Bigger prop means more load which means more fuel needed to power it. Going to a smaller prop requires less fuel so it will run richer on the smaller prop if not adjusted.
