Just keep advancing the ignition Richard - there'll be a place where it will run at its quietest.

Happy Christmas BTW!

Yes thanks Martin I was thinking of that when I run it up proper, the timing adjuster is strange! if you look closely at the picture you'll see that there are a couple of pegs below the "late" section and there are a few notches to choose in "late" section and what appears to be a line where I assume it has been ran before (Where I was running it).
Below the pegs there is the "early" section, but the only notch on there is fully at end (max), you also have to really yank the sprung pin back hard to get over pegs.

Adjusting the linkages will also vary the timing a bit.

If it would help, I could lend you the brass quadrant from an ordinary IP...

Thanks Mart I'll keep that in mind, however! I understand that you can effect an adjustment on linkages but there is quite an area in early section just no notches.
I'm sure I can supply a notch or two if it likes it somewhere in that section, I may take you up on your offer yet though.
This would have ran on town gas in the day so it's bound to be a little different on propane with a higher calorific value.

Not much to do now bit of matt black paint, it'll be on the rally field when it all kicks off again.

Had it out of shed for first time yesterday for a look in the cold light of day.

You have it running nice Richard.
It will be a while before we see another like that one, so it is a bit special. It looks to me like a one off for a special order.

Merv.
