Come on - don't try kidding us - its ALL of the above.  Just accept that now and make up three sets of sills (etc etc) and another few to sell on and keep the tooling ready for other orders.

After a few months Wink of pondering i decided to bite the bullet and get moving on an aprilia, business has expanded and i've now took next door aswell so perfect for more space for more renovation work in quiet times, i decided to start the green car as it was the most origional and have bare metalled it and started making new inner and outer sills, the engine now turns over on the starter after rebuilding the starter (nice job!!!!) and webber stripped cleaned etc, timing chain tensioner replaced as it was missing , valve and ignition timing done and its trying to start but i think there maybe more problems with the carb, anyway here she is in all her glory  Grin

Tim we checked this out just incase and all seems ok, basically we checked valve + ignition timing, tappet clearances, we had a sticking exhaust valve which is now cured , tappets had to be reset after a bit of churning over , presumably rust on valve seats?? , compression has now come up to a respectable figure again probably down to the valves bedding in, cracking spark at the points and plugs, carb was stripped and cleaned and 2nd choke freed off, accelorater pump is working and spraying fuel in , cleaned comutator up and fitted new brushes to the starter as it turned over very very slowly before hand, cutting along story short with the ignition on 6v and starter on 12v it was trying to fire but still wouldn't quite go, will probably have another go this weekend but i really need to crack on with the panel work as owen is already prepping the roof ( he's catching me up  Roll Eyes ) will keep you posted

I forget to mention its not wetting the plugs and cylinders nor plugs smell of fuel which suggests carb to me, if it was ignition then surely it would wet the plugs  Huh?

Am sure you have tried this but have you used a easystart spray on the carb  inlet when cranking? Could just be old petrol or something that needs some help...

Fresh fuel straight into the carbs float chamber+ easy start and still want go , personally i think its lack of compression or not enough compression maybe? my lads 50cc quad had a similar fault and would only start off a bump , turned out to be insufficient valve cleance dropping the compression just enough to make it impossible to start, the aprilia obviously has rust on the valve seats as the tappets were set then the exhaust valves on 2 cylinders closed up after cranking over and a couple of inlets did to, compression has vastly improved after probably 5mins in total of turning over and i'm just wondering if there is still not quite enough compression to draw fuel through hense no wet plugs and not enough to fire Huh? maybe wrong but any suggestions welcome
