[ENGINE] Turns over but won't fire

  1. Hi All,

    Had a breakdown in my aircooled '71 bus yesterday. I had a sudden loss of power & then couldn't get the engine to fire - at best it coughed and spluttered but i couldn't get it to run. Looks like I'd lost some oil too... Recovery guy said it might be just be an earth as there was still current getting to the plugs...

    I going to start going through the motions today, I'm a total newbie to all this, has anyone got some words of wisdom for me? Are there any blindingly obvious things I should be looking for?

    Cheers!! 8)

    It's all pointing towards ignition it fuel. Make sure fuel is getting to the carb and check those points as Zed said.
