    interesting reply paintman, first of all it came to me on a recovery truck range rover had been standing for couple of years, drove it off truck to driveway 30ft very rough put new fuel in 25litres kept trying it for couple of days running but rough when revving it was miss firing at high revs, removed plugs cleaned distributor descaled couldn't get rotor arm off so cleaned brass strip with sand paper all back together still the same 1 checked lead diagram different from my layout so changed it to suit wouldn't even start, turning over (had diagram from tech archives, see attached pic) so i had to move 8 to where no'1 was and 4 where no'8 was and so on then it would start but really rough 2 tdc test rotor arm pointing to no'1 spark plug if i turned it like you said yes it goes back on its own, tried to remove rotor arm but stuck fast and brass strip which was riveted on came off, so collecting one tomorrow 3 got rotor arm off at last and the shaft had rust stains on it and metal strip inside of arm was rusty previous owner has put a ignition amplifier on it by the coil on the nearside wing its been done badly with two core electrical cable something you see on a fridge and use them square connectors with grub screws on the top i have no lpg at the moment re moved tank to do some welding refitted but empty i will see what new rotor tells us tomorrow and up date thks for your advice, dd
