However on a long run to test it out, although the car ran okay, it just wasn't quite as refined as it usually is and the tick over is a little lumpy. Any suggestions?

11/12/2003 14:23:17   James Ayres   Hello all, finally got round to checking the timing - it was a mile out! I don't know how the car kept going at all! Tweaked it, and now she's going like a dream. Once again, thanks for all your help.
