I was hoping somebody might have an idea what I should look at next. Story so far - Spider 2000 not run for a few months. Has a new battery, leads, plugs, cap, rotor arm and coil. Now getting nice big spark at plug. However, still no sigh nof starting.
I don't seem to be getting a lot of fuel into the carb. The fuel filter (new - fitted right way round), doesn't get full. Would I be right in thinking might be fuel pump problem?
Any suggestions of what to look at next would be much appreciated.

From what you have described the mechanical fuel pump would be what I renew next.

To test : Have you tried dropping a bit of fuel straight down the carb to see if there is any sign of the engine trying to fire up, if it does try to start then it's most likely the fuel pump is faulty.

They are usually on eBay UK, if not then they are definitely available on eBay Italy.

Try eBay UK item 220511738845

I did have one, maybe two brand new ones, I'm not sure if I still have them couldn't sell them on ebay for 99p (!!) so they might have ended up in the bin with a lot of other Lancia bits that were getting under my feet, I will try to check tomorrow night

I might have a used one, I'll check tonight - at worst it can be a temp workaround or determine if its actually the pump thats at fault.

If it turns out the pump is at fault then PM me and I'll get one off ebay for you and send it up to you.

Have you tried taking the fuel pipe off just before the filter and turning it over to see if petrol pumps out??

Be careful of Fuel Pumps on Ebay...  I bought one and the top of the pump needs to be cut away to fit under the manifold (on my 1.6 coupe anyway) I bought one which wouldn't tuck in under the manifold???

well I spent an hour going through my parts stash and getting oil on my trousers (= trouble from swmbo) to only to find that I don't seem to have those fuel pumps any more, it did remind me of what I do have I am constantly forgetting what parts I have and which parts I still need to trawl eBay for
