Is there a fuel supply problem - not primed or tank level too low?

A few posts ago salter121 you said it cranked but wouldn't start. Now you say it won't crank? That certainly points to something in the starter motor circuit, especially if you aren't hearing a click. Have you checked fuses and relays? If you have an IID tool or other code reader are you getting any errors? 2008MY Tonga Green Vogue SE TDV8

The brake pedal will probably feel rock hard, making it difficult to engage starter until you get it started and build up some vacuum pressure.

Thanks, Baltic Blue. I've just seen that the starter motor breather tube is missing. I have no idea if its even possible to install without taking the engine back out. as I said at the beginning of this project nearly a year ago - its a jigsaw. When I said the engine is firing in my previous post; I made a mistake. they engine is turning. would the breather pipe not being connected stop it from trying to start? the brake pedal is not rock hard....not sure if that is a sign of something.

The missing breather pipe on the starter won't stop it working and it's been turning anyway.
The starter can be removed with the engine in-situ.

Does fuel without bubbles emerge from the bleed screw when the ignition is first switched on?

A diagnostic tool that can show live values might help diagnose the reason for not firing.

What a journey - she is sitting on the drive.... now on to the next items on the list

Amazing, congratulations you got it running!

Like the sound deadening idea, big job that.

I see you have the electric recline seats, they're great! Thumbs Up

You don't like the ivory interior? What will you change it to?

Great that you got past the non-starting issue. Do you know if it was caused by the broken earth strap?
