ma mans compliments people who buy British, is the ignition switch malfunctioning familam, will the engine turn on starter motor? check power to starter if power replace starter motor ma mans says check the fuel line filter and clean also clean out gas/air inlet units and check oil in the top of the gas air inlet units familam




the question is curious- you say "turn over" but we use that term when the engine turns but doesn't fire- and you say you have lots of spark and gas but then the engine should fire- you must be missing something- the car is missing something either in the fuel or ignition systems- does it have points? they must be just right- try replacing the condenser-


Ma mans agrees familam
