Hi All,
Redbeeza, Did you drain off the old petrol and refill with new? your symptoms sound very like bad petrol!!!!
Yes a piece of broken brush in the mag will cause all sorts of misfiring (ask me how I know)
An air line will blow out the loose piece with the pickups removed
I set the timing on the recent rebiuld ally headed A10 with flat topped pistons and a 356 cam at 34 degrees
its running really sweet,
After I set the timing with the degre disc I make a piston stop (see old topics) so as the timing can be reset or checked whenever

Hi redbeeza. I wonder if you got the A10 running yet, Can i just suggest you buy a timeing tool, i got one from SRM 5 quid money well spent, does away with all the guessing llspeeds up reassembly and you know its right. All the best, Ian
