Non Starter Spider - No spark
Bought a ph1 spider with the headgasket shot it had a flat battery, I put one on it with jump leads and it turned over a treat, really fast but wouldn't fire. I assumed the plugs were mucky.
I've done all the engine work on it now but still can't get it to fire. It turns over really fast and sounds like its going to fire giving the odd splutter but doesn't go.
I would have thought it was something i'd done wrong or not connected up but it was like it before so not so sure it's down to me.
The key code light goes out so I don't think it's an immobiliser issue. I checked all the fuses, everything seems fine. Checked that it's pumping fuel and it is. Took the coil packs off and put a couple of plugs in, put them up against the alloy rocker cover and couldn't see a spark. Would the rocker cover be a decent enough earth? (it had continuity with the engine block when I tested it)
Anyone have any ideas?
