Bypassed the fuel pump to see if it will start.
Still not running. There doesn't seem to be any spark...

Because no progress, you can have photos illustrating what I was doing for last 5 minutes...

Leads, rotor arm and coil issues to be eliminated?

I might as well just order every single part to see...

Seriously though, the rotor arms are nice and clean. Leads have seen better days but contacts seem clean enough. Coil, no idea how I would check so will probably have to just buy one.

Ordered carb overhaul pack just because.

Woolarding : you're doing it wrong.

 

 

To find the elusive spark, first check all spark plug leads, then check the coil lead, then check that 12v reaches the coil terminals.

No spark? At all?

Rub the points race with emery board or suchlike. I'll bet they are new and still have their protective coating on.

Today in post I received this thing sent in by a fellow forumer.

IMG_3967.JPG

Full, 4 page, Autocar test of the Fiat. Let me quote...

Spanish-built successor to 850, filling gap between Fiat 126 and 127. Performance rather slower than the 850, but still reasonable. Moderate fuel consumption, with 40 mpg readily available. Safe but not very enjoyable handling, and brakes rather dead. Plain but reasonably functional interior and good visibility. A sound, rather basic, economy car.

Thank you Sir.
