Recharged battery back in. Replaced the sheared and rusty battery clip bolts. Engine turns over at a greater rate and sounds somewhat healthy but doesn’t fire. Battery was part of the problem, must have lost it’s charge in transit. 10L of petrol put in, no change. Problem must lie with either igniton electrics or fuel system. Quickly tested, there are sparks at all spark plug leads.

Starter motor back on car. Still doesn’t turn over, just a faint whir. Battery unhooked and left to charge – a big ‘duh’ if this solves it – don’t think it will however, just exhausting possibilities.
