Ceratonia - thanks v. much, yes I got most of those tips from Google and Youtube, he's absolutely right. But very kind of him to dictate all those checks and solutions. I think it's possibly the fuel, so I'll be changing both. :-) G

Who'd a thunk it? £1.50 for the glow plug. It was going to be £5 online plus delivery. Got to love your local hobby shop! Fuel was a bit pricier, but fuel always is! The guy just laughed when I said my fuel was 6 years old. Couldn't light that with a match, he said! (I don't think he was suggesting that I should try though!)

So, going to have a go with new glow plug and fuel at weekend. Goodo.

Just saw this thread. Oddly enough, I have extensive experience with glow plug engines 🙂. Presume that you got it sorted?
