I’m a bit confused, I static time it at 2.4 ” on the flywheel with the lever fully advanced !. The bike starts fine and runs at a slow speed, but surely as you increase the revs you need to increase the advance ? but if the lever is already advance I cant do this ! On later bikes this is done by a centrifugal weight on the points.

This is because the full advance figure is the only known fixed point
