Elan Sprint Starting Problem

Aaah - time honoured test for spark but still effective! Pull a plug lead and crank whilst holding lead close to a metal part of the engine. Weak yellow spark = NG, Nice big blue spark = OK. Cautions! - don't run the lead open circuit particularly if you are running electronic ignition, don't do it near fuel of course and hold the lead with something non metallic so you don't get zapped.
