The plot thickens.
Work today, so Grace put into action again. Usual rough start, but cleared quickly. Interestingly the idle is spot on 800 rpm now when warm, and smooth too.
Gotta love the oldies, they keep me occupied!

More success today. Oil filter removed with my homemade wrench, no more than some webbing wrapped around a spark plug socket.

Oil change completed, ran out of time for more fettling, but a quick pic of the dizzy adjuster.

That arrangement is the same as on the Royal Barge:



... but the ignition sensor is contained within the distributor cap on that motor:



... like this:



... so the adjustment works just like it would with CB points. If yours doesn't have an arrangement like that then adjusting the distributor isn't going to change the timing (unless it moved by 90 degrees onto another cylinder).

I'm not sure that is in any way helpful to you, except in eliminating something.
