At risk of sounding silly, have you looked at the quality of
the ground (or "earth" if you want to be oh-so British about it)
If you are getting proper voltage, but not enough current,
I'd suspect a bad/loose/flaky/rusted/dirty ground.
This is a corollary to the axiom that 97% of all MG carb
problems are electrical in nature. :)
