I understand the Diplomatic Service has vacancies at the moment if you are looking for a career change :D ;)
Good old rotaries have a habit of that, I take it the FB buyers are not coming back?

Punishing me today...x4 deflood no dice.
Sparks are new and been blowtorched.

So remove plugs. Diasble coil packs. Wide open throttle and crank for 15 seconds..no more fuel vapour. Am i missing something...was hoping to diasble fuel pump..run the carb dry and then start again but there aint a fuelpump fuse?
Ive verified x4 plugs are sparking...its not even trying to fire...no grumbles or partial fires...its cranking good and strong off shogun at 2k and with mega jump leads...
Im gonna call it quits today with sparks out...
Any suggestions?

Spray Brake&Clutch cleaner into the holes to dry out the fuel, wiz it over then stick the plugs back in and see what you get.

The Fuse that controls the fuel pump  is in Fuse Box below dash,  I think is a 20A marked Engine?

Yep, definitely punishment. She knows you plan to get rid :-)

Seriously though, glad you got her to run in the end!
