Hi Mate,
A couple of pointers

just a thought but how old is the petrol? may be worth running through some fresh if its been in there for some time,

are the plug leads on the correct way? (sounds daft but I dont know how long you`ve had the car and if it was a runner when you got it?)

have you got a timming light, set it up and see if plug one is firring at the correct timing point, if its not then it could be ecu or faulty crank sensor

if all checks out ok then try a tow start, you will get more engine turnover speed with a tow and less strain on the starter

Hope this helps
Shaun
