new member here, im a member on other forums aswel but they are all useless.

so hope you guys can shine some light on the situation.

ok well this morning i started up my car, started fine as usual. i let it tick over on choke (automatic choke) then the car cut out. and wouldnt re-start.


1989 fiesta 1.6s carbed.

today i replaced

dizzy cap
rotor arm
and the plug are only a few months old.

got a lovely strong spark. car stinks of fuel so its deffo getting fuel.

iv dried off plugs and left the car for 30mins. and tried again and nothing.

i have taken the carb off and cleaned it.

its turning over, but not even attempting to start.
any help appreciated.

ps. can sombody confirm the firing order? and what psi the compression should be.

Have something to contribute?
