How do I start my bantam 2008

Asked by Jul 11, 2018 at 08:25 AM about the 2008 Ford Fiesta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I HV a 2008 bantam which won't start after
overheating and breaking the chain. I
overhauled the engine, skimmed the crank
and polished cam shaft, put new oil pump,  
bought new crank sprocket and chain. Now
it only cranks but won't start. Fuel pump is
working, it has a spark on the plugs, but
refuses to start. Any ideas?

Check that you have the correct flywheel. With the older engines that toothed crank angle sensor pick up on the fly wheel has 36 munis 1 teeth and the newer ones have 26 munus 2 teeth. Have you the correct Crank Position Sensor ?
