One of the first things to try is change the spark plug. I have seen many engines being cranked over that either don't fire or splutter and cough, a change of plug often brings them to life. Try picking up a new D16 plug and see how you get on. Are you holding down the air valve while cranking to give the engine a little choke, it should then fire and run. Needle valve about 3/4 turn open and then start from there. If your mag lead has one of those plastic modern end caps on it, throw it away and get a new brass terminal. Let us know how you get on. Cheers Dave

Hi Tony, Glad to hear it. Been there many times, change of plug and away they go. If you have a good mag on a D there isn't hugely much that can go wrong with the carb, so if you have sparks and fuel it should go. Did you invest in new D16s ?
Cheers Dave

be careful if you buy champion d16 on ebay. some plugs retail at 3-4 quid but are usually copies that last 5 mins. pay about double upwards and you should be ok.
