I have just purchased a 1932 Wolseley Hornet Special. I need to know where to set the static timing in order to start the engine. I also require a full exhaust system ( from the manifold back) Are parts such as condensors, points, rotor arms etc readily available? Thanks for any help. Rob

Hi Rob, using the mark on the flywheel rim the setting should be between 1/2 in before TDC and TDC, for the initial start up I would go for TDC and then adjust it once running for the best results.
The Distributor Doctor Tel 01398 361678 or Google his name for his website, is the man for any ignition parts.
For the exhaust you will have to get one made, make sure you get one of the old design of straight through silencers not one full of wadding the latter smother the sound too much. I have one for an Austin Healey on mine, it sounds lovely.

Thank you for that, much appreciated! Rob
