To close out the thread .... I set the ignition timing today, set 28 deg. BTDC on the drive side, I got 27 deg. BTDC on the timing side, I turned the motor over several times through 360 deg. and checked each cylinder. I used two different timing discs and got the same results.
I used cigarette paper in the points to indicate the opening point .... in his book , Paul Dunstall recommends using a battery and bulb ( taking out the points centre bolt ) but I did not trust the taper to hold the points sufficiently well.

I am happy with that result .... perhaps not perfect .... but a whole lot better than it was.

Thanks for the help and advice.

Closing off a thread by opening a new one seems a bit of a contradiction ?

Good you got it sorted, maybe your words need to be added to the original thread...
