James, I'll be checking the battery more often and it won't get left for months on end. If need be, I can remove the battery and charge it at my leisure so this type of charger will be fine for me. The same goes for the caravan battery.
I hoping to get the battery and my earth lead fitted tonight. A good earth will be condusive to a good spark. I want to turn my attention to the ignition system next. I reinstated the original Delco dizzy and I will stick with it. I now think that having the correct advance curve is more important that I thought before. I want to get it running on points and condenser so if anybody can recommend decent quality items I'm all ears. I was considering fitting my spare set of HS4s but I'll worry about that as soon as I've got the ignition side sorted out. The dizzy cap, rotor arm and HT leads are relatively new but I'll replace them if I have to.
