Use a known good battery and or jump start it. Some times a poor battery doesn't have enough for the ignition when cranking.

Try this before going through the big list:-

Fould plugs, rotor arm, leads, disi cap, coil failure, ignition timing (though should produce a spark), wire from starter to coil broken.

Im running a V8 so hard to remember the original engine. Points not opening?

Thanks for replying.  Pretty sure it's got electronic ignition.  We only got it yesterday.  Put a new battery on it.

Is there a  good colour wiring diagram for it
