Testing - went ok, if you call a reliable with no hesitation 3K rpm a success
.I am 90% sure it's my spark advance is on the wonk (to use the technical terminology!
) becuse I discovered the locking screw and adjuster were rattling loose whilst out on test.
Unfortunately 3K amounts to about 12 knots, so that combined with various family visits
got in the way of a repair, hence my non appearance this morning, so I may try another trip to Balloch on Tues.... if I can find a timing strobe (Thankfully found timing settings for it at cranking speed so should be able to adjust it in the garage) Also this is the first chance I've had to get to a PC, so couldn't let you know.
Hope it went well for those that made it.
