Paul, sorry, I have to disagree with what you're saying. By varying the static
timing the whole curve will be raised or lowered, not only the starting point.
I think that is what you wanted to say as you reference the static timing to
*additional* advance. I just wanted to make things clear.

Betreff: Re: Distributor/Ignition Question
There are actually four generic distributors for 4-cylinder MGBs (25D4,
45D4, 45DE4, 45DM4), the two points types can be fitted to either positive
or negative ground cars, the two electronic types were only fitted to
negative ground. By playing around with the static timing the advance curve
remains the same as they are referenced in terms of *additional* advance, it
is just the starting point that varies.
The symptom for the points plate ground wire going intermittent is the
(electronic) tach flicking around in time with the cutting in and out.
