Frame number is fine, its from 1969 season (August 1968-July 1969) - XC = December 1968 so would have left the factory December 1968 or early 1969.

Below is the C15SS 80 from 1962 catalogue.

It looks like standard C15 colours so it could be a originally have been standard bike with SS80 engine fitted later in its life.

Should be one. Some owners use loctite.

The regulator - suggest the DVR2. Probably the best on the market. Comes positive or negative earth and can be hidden in an original regulator case.

Avoid anything offered beginning with W. Tried one, cheap to buy but awful quality - waste of money.

They are all separate connections not one common connection.

It is more likely a problem with the individual at DVLA rather than the system.

All the Club vehicle reports include the wording quoted above by Bess and there have been hundreds of successful applications based on it.

As previous post "New DVLA Committee" there is no separate record of build date.

You could try a phone call to them.

Right hand thread.

Sometimes a hard sharp tap on the socket wrench with a suitable hammer will start it.

 Not tried it but sound like it should work. I seem to remember some fitted such to some Triumphs to allow more advance for fast work.

Let us know how you get on.

I have used the cigarette paper method and it works OK but now prefer a mag timing light.

Manual and auto advance mags have different parts.

The end housing are different as are the cam rings.

To use an auto advance on a manual mag you would need to use the appropriate cam ring. You can use it in the manual end housing but you might need to loctite it.

Manual cam ring in photo 2.

Auto or manual cam ring, can be used in either in photo 3.

Auto or manual is a matter of personal preference.

I used the distance method fo many years without any problems, the real issues being establishing exactly when engine at TDC and exactly when the points are just opening.

The advantage being you dont need to remove the primary chaincase outer nor source and fit a degree disc.

I now use an SRM degree disc fitted to an SRM crankshaft nut. SRM recommend 33 degrees for iron head engine in their electronic mag kit instructions.

It is usual for there to be a difference between the cyinders with a magneto, due to manufacturing tolerances and wear, sometimes up to 5 degrees
