Hi everyone, i'm new to the forums so i'm sorry if this post is not in the correct place.

I had a 1293 spi engine which i built myself but unfortunatley crashed the car. I have now got another mini (1991, not spi) and have put my spi engine and wiring into it.

The problem i have is that it will not start.
The engine turns over fine.
It has fuel.
It has spark.
Timing and compression is fine.
All ht leads are in the right places.
It has a good earth.

The engine only did about 2,000 miles after i built it and i have not taken it apart, only swapped it to another car. I have also checked all the usual spi sensors such as the coolant temp, crank sensor and the air filter sensor.

If anyone has any suggestions as to what the problem might be it would be very much appreciated.
