Advance maybe one of your problems.
Have a look at the advance plate under the points.
The carrier that holds the ball bearings is usually gone and hence no advance.
There should be three ball bearings at the end of the plastic arms.
I remade mine in aluminium to fix the advance.
So it was you parked over with the Bolwells ! I was next door with the Morgans with my father's (previously mine) red MR2. Would have been in the Z if finished, or my Morgan except I took it off rego for a bit of a rebuild.
Kept meaning to go for a look but kept bumping into old friends !
So progress has been quite slow getting this setup complete.
Sometimes information given by people is not the full story so you need to dig deep amd look for more information yourself.
Had some clearance issues with the rear disc as it was not spinning freely due to it touching the caliper brackets. So machined the discs today shaving off 3 mils and now the disc is spinning freely.
Front end is in exceps calipers. Rear end, the diff is in and control arms with new bushings. Hopefully Friday will put tye rear shocks up and get the car off the rotisserie.
The car is so dusty man I was sneezing like I had hay hay fever lol
