Bloody iPhones changing words!!!!

You didn't mention anything about the points (at least i don't think you did)
Have you checked them, replaced them?

If by putting pressure on the distributor, and it runs OK, sounds like you have a bent dizzy shaft. See if you can borrow a dizzy to try.

Mine runs rough as guts on petrol, but its dried out, and flooding real bad. Carby kit coming.

Try replacing the condenser it could be the culprit.

2 wires coming from battery with fuseable links, 1 white wire with red stripe and 1 red wire, cut the red wire, its not needed and causes misfire

Why not just change to a electronic ignition set up? That'd fix the bent dizzy shaft (if its indeed that)

Mine was missing.. i just replaced coil, resisitor, leads and spark plugs and it seemed to work... I pulled the fuse out of the red wire like monaroman said.. didn't change anything.. so..

Just trying to help :)

the carby hs petrol running through it every time the car is running , cleaning a carby with petrol does buggar all . needs to be acid dipped to remove residue . all petrol will do is remove any dirt or grease on the outside of the carby
