Engine is a 998cc from an E plate Classic Mini. Only 30k miles under belt.

- Dizzy + cap
- HT leads
- Starter motor
- Radiator + hoses
- Resistive wire with in line resistor
- SU carb cleaned and is operating fine
She has been mothballed for a while prior and we had the engine turning over and firing last summer before the above work was done.
Now when we try to restart her, the engine catches and revs while on the starter motor, however, once the key is release back to position 2, the engine dies. No follow on or attempt to idle.
We figured it might be the ignition switch, so replaced that, but with the same result.
Kind of think it's an electrical problem, but not sure what to check.
Any thoughts out there?
