Thanks portgy

Valves need to be adjusted, classic symptons.

Valves are being held slightly open meaning there isn't enough compression to allow the engine to fire. A semi simple job, no need for a shop, just buy a 12mm wrench, 10mm wrench and a set of feeler gauges, oh and a manual......if you need help just ask.:13:
