Did you remember to disconnect the vacuum advance and plug the tube, while you were setting the timing?

Do you have a timing light with an adjustment on it? I’ve seen some where you can “dial in” an offset. Good day Phil no..this was second hand fiver special.... I understood the TDC on No1 lead should just indicate where the marker should be seen? looks i need to do some more reading up.. Ta Manny

Ss1 seat upgrade

i installed two red leather MGF seats, just about fit nicely and i picked them up for £35 quid for the pair of Ebay...black ones are far more expensive and in demand.. nice cheap upgrade if you are handy with a grinder and MIG welding
