So if we assume you have fuel as the plugs are smothered in the stuff, if you have a spark in the right place too then there could well be a mechanical problem, quick compression test while the plugs are out to just confirm that's all fine?

Haven’t got any compression test gear

Had the AA out he don’t know either so I’ve got a lorry on its way to take it where I’m storing it until we get the new house next year
