Got used to it by now!
BRP is all back together but won't start. Not even using jump leads or towing it made it want to run.
The rotor arm is pointing at number 1 when the car is at TDC, there's a spark and there's fuel but other than a few "gasps" it doesn't want to know.
So, the battery is now on charge and I am waiting for another day when it's not so damp and it's a bit warmer. Also when I have a bit more inspiration.
The Toledo on the other hand started fine even though it's stood out in the cold and rain - what a great little car it is.
