Hi all, just wondering if there are any nutzers in the north east area could advance my timing for me, as I dont have the right gear or knowledge to do it... obviously I'd rather not have to buy a timing light just to do this, and I figured a nutzer would be better than going to a garage who doesn't know the car.

Anyone help me? Thanks in advance

Thanks for the offer, But 3 hour round trip has put me off.
Cheers Halli, appreciate the help with this.

It does seem to have made a small difference particularly noticable when driving sedately and in the midrange... the longer I drove it, the more the difference seemed to become obvious... overall I think it has made a small improvement.

Just had mine done by Spunkey, the car runs soo much better now. Found out that the car was running 18 degrees and thats why it never felt right. Thanks again Ed much appreciated. Time to really enjoy the car

So you actually had yours retarded slightly in the end?

Running such advanced timing could have ended in tears... glad you got that sorted
