Turn Over But No Ignition
Posted 10 November 2019 - 08:11 PM
I have taken the 1.5 inch carb off to sort a fuel leak that was picked up at its mot and failed because of it.
I took the carb off and gave it a clean. I didnt strip anything from it. Just tried to see if the leak was coming from the jet area. I gave it an external clean and put it back on the car to see if I could see more clearly where the leak may be coming from.
But now it wont start. The spark plugs are wet with fuel and every spark plug sparks after I took each one out to check.
The engine now turns over but does not fire. I haven't touched the distributor or anything. I'm very confused.
Help needed! Pleeease.

Sounds like it could be flooding .. you sure the jet isn't jammed open?

Are you getting voltage on the contact or negative side of the coil with the points open? If not, either the coil is not working or you are earthing out the low tension circuit. On a 1979 points distributor, it's possible for the condenser / low tension lead to touch the point bottom plate, preventing the coil from energising. Just happened to me after an engine rebuild.
