Hello all just a brief introduction my name is roy i have a mk3 escort 89 wich has a new rebuilt mk1 xr2 crossflow engine dropped in and i finally got the chance to hear it try to start yesterday but failed miserably and im not sure why, i have a new distributor + coil wich was fitted and is all in workin order as i have a spark its manual petrol pump wich wont feed the carb as the engine wont run so i tried to force feed the petrol through the carb and still had no joy so im not sure wether the carb is buggered as i brought it off ebay for £12 only solution i can come up with is to buy a new carb and see how that go's but that is turning out to be a problem in itself as i need a manual twin choke dft and i cant find 1 any where even burtons dont sell it, if a new carb fails to work does any1 have any ideas as to why it wont start? many thanks regards roy.

there is so many reasons why the car will not start that without inspection and a few tests it difficult to suggest where to start, but for the carb try these guys
