well ive spent the most part of three days in a freezing cold garage trying to get a minor mk6 going. It has the midget mk2 engine.
ive been through everything, compression, fuel, spark, and everything seems to be there although, it has to be said, the spark is on the weak side. Points emeried and polished etc.
which only leaves timing, I've timed it really carefully, with the notch in the crankshaft at 45 degrees in line with the cylinder at what appears to be tdc. The flywheel has been off but has not slipped out of position on re-assembly
Which all leaves me very puzzled, or is it just down to this very cold weather we're having?
