  1. Car is running reasonable nicely now but there are some hesitation issues that remain.

    when I use the strobe light on the timing marks I notice the following:

    At idle when engine is up to temp the mark on the crankshaft pulley is on the 10degree mark

    when gentle throttle is applied the timing mark retards to the tdc mark and with further throttle it eventually goes to, where I think, it should.

    any ideas?

  2. I asked this question several years ago but thought I’d ask again to see if people’s views had changed.

    If there was one person you could meet on this forum who would it be and why?

    I’ve been lucky enough to meet a few forum members, mostly at Christmas dinners and summer meets, but there is one forum member I haven’t met and would like to meet, purely to do with their online persona and knowledge. I’ll let others chime in with there preferences first before I tell you mine.


  3. Great advice as always guys. Thanks.

    Just to get things straight as I reassemble again:

    Timing marks on cam pulleys line up.

    Crank shaft Mark on the right hand pointer.

    Distributor slots back in

    Rotar arm now points at number one HT lead? 

    Rotary arm spins counterclockwise?

    Firing order

  4. Borrowed a known good coil and fitted it this morning. Still won’t start. 

    Checked the voltage on the fuel pump, all good. 

    ‘Took the tops of the carbs and there is fuel in there.

    spark plugs look a little black.

    think it’s time to get someone round that knows what they are doing!
