Checked all fuses (Fine)
Checked Spark plugs (Fine)
Fuel Cut Off Switch (Hasn't been tripped)
My dad thinks it could be fuel pump gone, so that will be next thing to check, just wondered if there's anything else that we could of possibly missed and could check before we get a new pump.

can you hear the fuel pump when you turn the key?
Now that you mention it no i don't hear it kick in. So it seems it could be the fuel pump then, where would this be located, I'm waiting on Haynes manual to arrive tried Google come upon some American version which states its under the rear seat is this true for UK versions too.

Unfortunately the fuel pump is in the tank. Its possible to cut a hole under the rear seat to get at it, but you may as well just drop the tank. Its not hard to do if you have a decent set of axle stands.
Ok thank you, is there anyway of testing if fuel pump is gone just dont want to rip the fuel tank off, if that isn't the problem.
