C15 update
Re-timing yet again to the latest advance
NO BETTER
Now convinced the problem is the advance springs
With engine at tickover slight increase in revs gives full centrifugal advance
So sure this is not correct
NEED NEW SPRINGS BUT CANNOT FIND A SUPPLIER
CAN ANYONE HELP

Dean Just had a good read of the service sheets(thanks again)
You are quite correct they do cover all types of distributor.
The potential good news according to the info on sheets I have used the in correct advance
SHOULD BE
0.280 " before TDC
NOT 0.125" stated in the Haynes manual.
Let's see if this helps
Fingers crossed
Regards

Reset the ignition timing.
But still running very poor.
Starts first or second kick but will not pull or rev
Running out of ideas.
Not sure what to try next

Having mega problems getting the timing set.
I notice springs are slack on distributor plate.
Any idea where you can buy a set.
Or are loose springs OK ?

       Try wiring direct to the coil from the battery.
        Also may be worth checking the earth sometimes looks OK BUT RUST stops a good contact.
I have a good wet battery FOC if you are near Staffordshire.

3/8 BSP is correct for my tank.
Got an adapter as you said.
Also purchased BAP type tap (no idea what BAP means)
Hopefully soon road ready
Thanks

AMC Singles may be worth a look.
A nice 350 went for 2500 in Stoke recently.
I think they are considerable bigger than B40 ???

I will try to find a way to exert a pull to the plate.
Without removing the g/box cover

Thanks Dean
                   Not sure if the procedure is the same for points on the side engine,which I have.
                    I may have misled you you by referring to the distributor.
However service sheets very useful, thanks.
