David's advice(and his help and advice has been enormously helpful to me too) of 24degree timing has given you good running, but this lower figure for advance may be giving you your starting problems, would it be worthwhile timing the ignition to say 30 degrees and see if the starting improves? If it did you'd know you need to find a means of having less advance/retard in order to keep the 24 degrees for running and still have decent starting.600cc Comet Carby?
Hello fellow enthusiasts. I'm new to this so go easy on me.
I converted my Comet to a 600 using one of 'our Terry's ' kits a couple of years ago. It goes well, although its a pig to start with a BTH ignition. I'm using a 36mm Dellorto pumper carby at the minute, although Terry did recommend a 38mm. After seeking advice from Dave D I'm at 24degree ignition timing. I had a 47 tooth rear sprocket made by a legendary Vincent owner Brendan ONeal in Geelong. Am I on the right track?
