comment What might cause inconsistant ignition, an extemely loud bang but no visible damage?
Thanks Mauro. I've taken the plugs out again and they are black but not wet. I'll look at adjusting the fuel/air mix. What's a good way to clean the plugs?

I've had a look at the plugs again and they are black but not wet. Seems like carbon fouling, probably over-fueling so I will try and adjust the fuel/air mix. I might also consider getting a new air filter just in case. The starter turns at normal speed and adding a bit of petrol to the carb doesn't help. I've got someone to help me today and will try and do a compression test. What's the best way to clean the plugs?

Thanks. I will recheck spark and fuel supply and perform a compression test today and post the results.
