    TOW IT in 2nd gear - 100 yards should be going again. I've had to after leaving mine parked uphill, Cranking it over won't bleed through quick enough.

    Hope you get going

    Got it going eventually,poured some diesel into fuel filter canister screwed back on,and just kept turning engine with quick bursts,after about 20 mins of doing this she fired up,so all seems well now....Hoping that the pump not knackered though...
    Thanks alll for your ideas.
