    I have just bought this car to restore when I bought it the car was fine but when I got the car home it will not start from the key. It will bump start but thats it. I have replaced the battery and tried rocking the car to help the starter but nothing. The only thing that happens when key turned is the fuel pump comes on and that is it can anybody help me!! I am also willing to sell the car if anybody interested

    If its a nice one dont get rid of it just because of this. It wont be much.. either the starter itself or the wiring to it.. thats about it really

    If the key turns probably just the starter solenoid or points on that

    It is the little oblong thing on the side of the starter,with the smaller wire going to it ,give it a few taps with a hammer
