Stick with it ,not much to go wrong with the Ds other than the mag or plug. On all else they are very forgiving.

I have checked all the simple things with the help of Abes on the phone but it still wont run, must be something that I am not doing so I will have to get someone more experienced to have a look at it!

it is a very good pic, sounds like a fuel / mix issue, have you got fuel at the plug?

I've seen a Lister D fail at a rally because it got coked up due to not being run under load. I'm sure someone local(ish) will be able to come over soon and give you a hand mate Wink

I'm sure Nutgone and I could head over there at some point in the not too distant future. We can all stand there and scratch our heads together Laughing
I'm busy for the next couple of weekends but I don't mind running Nutty down there after that as his car is off the road at the moment.

Toby try to relax, as you can see the guys will do anything they can to help you, it's the old phrase that comes along again with SE have a bit of patients.

Good luck and you'll have it running again soon.

Check for a spark on another plug. I have a small 2 stroke geny i was getting spark's at the plug but would not go.
Put new plug in and went. Just a thought
Many Thank's
