Update ... although a bit late. Changed near side coil pack, not difficult. All the plug holes were full of water, I mean full, coil pack had two big cracks in it ... how was it running? Hoovered out the plugs holes, then sprayed them with WD, hoovered that out as well till it looked new. Fitted coil pack. Runs like a dream.

Plug holes full of water is an Omega characteristic, caused by a leaking scuttle. You can seal it with silicone, but it needs to be readily removable to work around the rear of the engine. Removing the foam drastically reduces the problem, and is easy to do.

Or fix the real issue, which is the windscreen seal needs knocking back on :y

Yeah, did that. But for it to seal, it needed knocking into the glass by a couple of mm. And I haven't figured out a way of doing that without creating a lot more wind noise and a massive water leak onto the dashboard.

The seal has a hard (metal probably) u shape that if memory serves is malliable enough to manipulate, but springy enough to grab.

I've always found it trivial to put it back on properly.

Mines miss-shapen after it blew out (too fast) and won't lock in. Previous owner said windscreen got replaced and current seal never sat properly. It's currently held in place with tape, waiting for me to get a new hot melt gun!

TheBoy is right, all the ignition troubles started after it blew out.
