bomber.  the bit of paper you get with the dizzy it said set at 18 and thats what we did. from there i backed it of little bit at a time  till it was pinging more so went back a bit left it there. will get engine man to put timing light on this weekend. carb is straight out of box to.. just thought that timing is usually the cause of pinning its only got 10.5 comp so would not think that would be the problem..

 

thanks David keep at him

I think if you have high compression (10.5) you use a colder plug. Very nice well balanced FB.

Pretty sure the r in the bp"r"6ef means its a resistor plug.
Probably a mix up by spare parts store.
