Timing chest diagram

I was rebuilding a Comet last year and noticed there wasn't a timing chest diagram. So I altered the twin to suit. If it makes any body else's life easier, that would be great. So here it is.
It was on thevincent.com a while back, but this is the version actually in the chest.
If anybody can think of a better place to put it feel free, but this is a very lo-res version to fit on the forum.

Thanks for posting this Lyn.

I am aware that many people have lots of things they'd like to post on the forum, so we have an accurate record of our machines and Club.

Because of this, along with everything else (including the photo posting thing), I'm looking at a ways of doing it, but because of the complexities, don't expect a solution in the next day or two!
