Hey, well done there OCN Series II eh, Rare! Nice to see another saved, it is looking good.
Just a thought on your running issues. I've had a similar problem in the past with a Fastback; started and idled but would not rev, after thinking it was fuel issue, it turned out to be a... condenser!
That was after putting a new 'Intermotor' one on, which made no difference as it was DOA!. But a good old Lucas one sorted it and it ran fine: may be worth a shot for a few quid.
Cheers for the photos. G.

Had a thought along those lines myself? On with a Wolseley Hornet as well, this has an electronic gizmatriod instead of contacts and car runs perfect. Might swap that over as is same Lucas dissy and see what happens. Cheers for your input, looking forward to getting it sorted.

Got the engine sorted. Turned out to be the advance weights in the dissy were not moving. Been stood for 10 years or more. Engine trying to rev with no advance. Runs sweet now. Interior nearly done, will post pics when sorted.
