Need some advices regards an old Saga Megavalve which cannot start.
Battery is okay, only cranking sound but engine not able to run.

The car haven't been use for about a few months.

Petrol is available. Pumped some in early of the year.

Spark plugs are okay.

Anyone have a idea what is the most possible problem?

plug cables all secured?

BTW, exactly how old was the petrol, when you mean "pumped some in early this year""

I think you need to crank it a bit longer. Carbies probably drained.

Two main things to look for. Fuel and spark. Open air filter cover look into carb opening. Get someone to step on accelerator pedal. Should be able to see fuel squirt in. Then take one spark plug out attach the plug cable and earth the plug to engine metal. Get someone to crank the engine and see if there are any sparks. If both are okay, then probably like bro. Izso mentioned you may need to crank a little longer, or hope the combustion chamber is not flooded with fuel, then you need to crank longer without stepping on the accelerator.
