I so grateful to you Stuart. Should have listened to you right from the start and and saved myself a week's agony.

For the other guys - Stuart really knows his way around a DR. If you go back on this thread you will see he diagnosed the fault early on and exactly correctly.

So after getting used to doing everything I could contemplate and still just hearing the engine turning over. This time I fitted a 3c resistor to the ignition and without daring to get too exited in case I am dissapointed again - I composed myself and touched the start button.

The mighty DR roared into life immediately.

I nearly cried  :peepwall:

Thanks again Stuart - I owe you big time,
