Won\'t Start

1987 zuk , initially I have no compression but seems to build up . I have spark and fuel . Is it my valves? has the timing jumped? any help would be greatly appreciated! Engine does turn over.Seems to be getting compression back to the carb.

Mine had that problem. Plenty of fuel to the carb and plenty of spark. The timing was right (I never messed with it) and the belt hadn't snapped, so it could mean only one thing, carb died.

We replaced it with a Pony and it fired right up, not a problem since.

Re: Won\'t Start

Al seems to be coming together. The timing belt tensioner is/was out of whack . Ordered a new one and the assy.

Re: Won\'t Start

No compression- I would suspect the timing belt. If you have a haynes manual the way they tell you to set the timing is wrong. I will check the FSM for the right position if you want. a search on this BBS might pull it up too, I know we have talked about it before.
