Annoying misfire

Thank you. The rotor does rotate slightly but I didn't get chance to test the timing.

My SE5A runs very well, starts first time and idles well warm or cold. But as soon as I push my throttle further than around an inch and a half it spits and farts like a llama.

Already I have an issue with "iffy" running so I'm going to dive straight into the relevant section and begin picking ...
