so removed mag and set the timing 15-20 degrees earlyier, remounted mag and got it to the book first go Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
stuck it all back together again.

Tempting, but you're quite a long way from me. I've got family up Cheshire/Stoke on Trent way.
Besides, I think the wife would have a fit if I got any more engines Shocked
