My 1989 998cc engine mini will not start (the car has a standard HS4 carb).
This is long saga. A few weeks ago I had a petrol leak between the float bowl and the jet, basically the seal had failed. I took the carb off and resealed it using a repair kit. Refitted the carb etc. Went to start the car and it would not start
In my wisdom I thought there be some crap in the jet and bought a new jet and fitted it. Again would not start
I then took out a spark plug after lots of cranking and it was dry. I checked float bowl and it was full of petrol. I have checked/refilled the dashpot.
by the way - There is a spark at the plugs so I know the ignition is ok.
Any help would be appreciated!
