Spark plug should normally be wet with petrol if its getting though to the cylinder. Also pop the spark plug out, hold with insulated pliers against bare metal on the block and have someone pull the engine over. You should see the spark.

Can you imagine to looks of horror on the Bar Staff's faces if it did indeed fire up and flood out the lounge . Dry suits the order of the day perhaps .
