I can't figure out whether the idle ignition advance on the 1700 Xflow should be 10 or 14 degrees. The Weale book is a bit confusing, it says 10 degrees Bosh 14 degrees Caterham. Does this refer to the distributor? If it does, how do I identify it? Mine has an orange cap. Does that help? It is really hard to examine it as it sits undet the carburetors.
The other thing is a bit of a puzzle. When the engine is up to temperature I see a bit of smoke/steam come out from under the transmission tunnel. Initially I thought it came from the crankcase breather, but it definitely isn't coming from the engine block. It could, of course be exhaust that makes it under the car, but any ideas?
