I havent had time to have a look at the car tonight , but just a random thought...

The TDC sensor that goes over the flywheel. How does it work ? Electromagnetism ? Could this be interfered with due to excessive crud* on it ?

* crud is a highly technical version. Some maynot understand it.

I'm sure it is basically a magnetic pickup. I suppose to much gunk could interfere?

The flywheel will have a missing tooth, or maybe a longer tooth then all the others to indicate when to spark.

Made the dizzy adjustable , put it 180 out. Redid the ht leads.

Cannot get the car to idle sensibly. Sounds like it is idling on 3 cylinders.

2 minor electric shocks later from the ht leads ( even tho I had a thick towel over it ) and I still couldnt get it running right.

Move it back to the "fixed" position , and voila. Idles fine.

Couldnt take it out to boost ( where no doubt it will miss ) as kids in bed.

WTF?

Fixed.


Reference pipe from top of FPR to the Carb top was cracked on the inside.

Cut it back , put it back on , job jobbed.

^^

Follow the fuel pipe from the carb. You will find the FPR hiding down at the bottom of the drivers inner wing.
