I make it, in each part, 64, of which 42 contain 32 rows, 11 contain 30 rows and 11 contain 2 rows.  Each time you change from X to C, you ring 2 changes of a lead, then omit the next 30.  Similarly, when you change from C to X, you omit the first two changes and ring the remaining 30.

Yes, but why is that a problem?  It's a function of the way you've described it.  It's only like virtual course ends in a conventionally notated composition, which aren't actually rung at all, and mean more courses are shown than are rung.
