Good Day
I have a Talbot Express 1300p it turns over and will not start
I have checked all the obvious
Bought new starter motor, coil, new leads, new spark plugs, checked compression
checked timing, changed oil and oil filter, checked fuel
Turns over really good but will just not fire up
been trying for weeks now
anyone got any ideas please

I don't know if this will help or not but it seems you have done everything but check the earths, are you getting spark.
These vehicles are funny buggers at best of times.

Thank you for your reply
And yes I am pulling my hair out I really am
Just do not understand why it won't fire up
I have checked the earth and yes I am getting a spark
I have even added a further earth strap to engine and battery tray as the one i had was looking tired
I have been out there for over two weeks and cannot work it out

I was having problem a couple of year ago with my Camelot 1300p 2lt petrol and went round all the earths cleaning every one including the ones near the pedals in the cab and also replaced the mesh strap one from the gear box to the body with a thick sheathed earth wire as the mesh one had oxidised although it looked ok on the face, and I don't know what I did right but it started after that.

Hi Tommytwo,
has it got a good spark at the plugs.
The ignition system on these things can be temperamental.
Did it just stop or refuse to start next time you came to use it ?
Mick.
