Was blaming my poor idle on crap morrisons fuel but a timing light soon showed i was wrong.

with the blue sender plugged in it was weaving around, unplugged the engine sound changed but the line was well out, then i noticed that the bolts either side of the dizzy had worked loose, so reset the timing and plugged the blue sender back in, and now it idles a lot better and feels more responsive on acceleration.
