hi mate

if sparks are available -- what about petrol?? Check with booster pump or its fuse.

If your sure your getting fuel and a spark at the plug how about taking the plugs out and drying them on your gas hob, pop them back in and it might start, the cylinders might be flooded with fuel if you've been trying all day to start it.

if you have a spark (and it is a good one) and fuel it has to be timing related, either the plug lead firing order is wrong or there is somthing more serious wrong

all sorted

thanks for your help

timing was ok but the rotar arm was at number 4 position

when it was suppose to be at number one when timing marks aligned up

distrubutor removed and refitted

started 1st turn of the key
