"Well it starts and runs now - set the dynamic timing with the strobe to 10 degrees BTDC. Adjusted the carb roughly to get it running leaner. We will set the carburetor better at the weekend and hopefully go for a little run to see how it goes. "

"Good news - got the new coil on today and it fired up first time - even with the timing just roughly set.It ticked over albeit a bit roughly but it is running again at last. Going to set up the dynamic timing with my strobe and reset the carbs from…"

"Getting a new high power coil delivered this week as the spark seemed almost non existent - hopefully will start again on Sunday - fingers crossed."

"Start with TDC, check camshaft position - crank rotates twice for every turn of the cam.  If the crank and cam are pointing at the markers THEN you can set the dizzy."

"I just had a look at the position of the distributor and the relation with the rotor arm and found the red sensor on the distributor was 180 degrees off from lead 1.I am now setting the rotor arm to point at the sensor when the engine is at tdc and…"

"We squirted a lot of fresh fuel directly into the carb as we were turning the engine over and when it did run the engine was only firing on 1 or 2. Will do the fresh fuel thing and have a look at the baseline settings for the timing - the setting is…"

"You can just take off the air filter and slosh some petrol down the carb. I do that when the car has been standing for a while in order to save using the battery to turn over the engine just to pump the fuel into the carb. I don't actually…"

"Thanks - I set the static timing by putting the engine to TDC and noting the firing position rotor of the original distributor was pointing at plug lead 1. The firing order of leads on the distributor cap is correct. When I put the new distributor…"

"I have an Accuspark Bosch conversion in my Legerra. The 'firing' point is way off where you would expect it to be. It took quite a few attempts to get the right 'slot' on the dizzy. With so many altered variables in play I…"
