Hi nick
Thanks for the help I have had a good look this morning and the old girl will turn over but not even start now . All the work was carried out by Tickover so the make I do not know but looking it's the same as yours .
It must be something really stupid or the electronic ignition fault as not all new things do work . Also what makes me think it's that is the rev counter is bouncing what is connected to the coil , what goes back to the electronic Ignition ?

I have sat on a chair in the drive way just looking and all looks ok no pipes off anywhere

No playing this Easter and I know them lads at Tickover will have her back up and running soon . :beer:

Bin that "electronic ignition" you have fitted its not true electronic
Go to 12v electronic with recon distributor (yours will be worn) get rid of the ballast resistor
H & H kit with coil and dissy (exchange yours) Truly fit and forget.

I agree above with renaulthater. Never had an issue with this since i have had mine fitted since September 2015.
