My G13a won’t fire up.

I’m getting spark and fuel but still won’t start.
It sat for over a year while being done up and now won’t go. Did have it run briefly when I got it but ran rough.

I took the cab off for rust work and I’m 90% sure I have put all hoses etc back to there original position.
I have spark from the plugs and can see fuel going into the carby ( probably flooded )

What should I be checking next?

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.

Could be flooded maybe find a way to empty the fuel and try some starter fluid.

Double check every hose and connection.

First of all! Start with fresh fuel. Fuel does go off and if you’ve had it sitting over a year I’d not trust the fuel that’s in it. By your post I’m guessing the fuel was sitting in it already when you bought it so it could be a zillion years old.

I’d find a spot to drain as much fuel out your system as possible, say siphon it from the fuel hose as close to the carby as possible. Give the table a few litres of fresh fuel and try again. Replace the fuel filter while your there if you haven’t already.

Make sure you allow enough time for the fresh fuel to reach the motor. Taking any steps to diagnose with crap fuel in the line is possibly unnecessary.

if you have had all the hoses off the carb I would be looking real hard at all the vacuum hoses. dose it fire up at all? if its a vacuum issue they normally fire up nut might die straight away. also if you have had the carb apart look at the shut off solenoid make sure that is plugged in correctly.
