Bogging at 4000 rpm

One last thought you have no fuel pump and no spark that suggests that K17 and K18 are not working - unless you have two wire faults. Have you checked that these relays energise - if not have they lost their earth's - given that the relays are mounted separately on the bulkhead.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

You have to think the ECU needs to be tested in one way or another - the company I suggested were very helpful and a new ECU was not that expensive. My car was even originally fitted with a manual one instead of a auto one - I did not even know there were two types until I talked to one of their eng...

According to your list Y14 is the engine speed control - I have never looked at it to see what it is/or how it works/or where it is but it might be the Idle Control Valve.

Insurance again!

You can always keep a note of your NCB from your current insurers and get a letter from your classic insurers says that you have not had any claims ( if that's the case ) and I think most insurance Co's would accept that - they all know who's had a accident anyway truth be told.
