If you haven't got a copy yet, you'll want one!

Hi Nick, along with the Woodrow manual, Chris Gould's guide was my first purchase - somehow page 21, "Original Specifications ..." had eluded me!

For auto advance the points should be set to open at TDC. "Standard" A7 engines will tolerate small timing errors and some tweaking on test runs may  improve performance.

Thanks Graham, as I said, I'm new to the manual timing on the steering wheel. I have to say your advice seems counter intuitive, in that I had imagined setting the car to idle at its static timing position and then manually advancing the timing from there to suit. Your proposal indicates I would only ever retard the timing from its static setting using the manual control, which I would think was unusual.
