Hi Peter,

Have you checked for spark from the coil lead while cranking?

Could be a faulty coil, very common.

Hi Gary the coil is also new

Hi Peter,

The engine doesn't start, you have PROVED it has no spark, is that correct?

With all those new parts, I can assume you have a wiring fault or another fault ie timing chain, fuel pump etc.

Does the rotor button turn while cranking the engine?

Hi Peter,

Have you done any further testing?

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
