I would clean the carb- take the carb off, take the bowl off then spray carb cleaner into all of the jets, put it back on and see ifit is better.

This is a twin cylinder so make sure the plug leads are on correctly and confirm you have a good spark. The idle screw on the carb should be about 1 1/4 turns out but note how yours is set by counting how many turns to screw in then you can return to this if needed. Fuel oil mixture is 2% oil to petrol don't get this wrong too much oil will make it extremely difficult to start and only use TC3W spec oil.

When cleaning the carb (Dellorto models) remove the main jet and soak in carb cleaner or at least neat fuel. The idle drillings in the Venturi can be poked through with strands of soft copper wire and or blown through with compressed air.

These engines like a lot of choke (virtually flood) with a bit of throttle until they fire then knock the choke off and open the throttle slightly. If you have flooded it shut the choke off and turn it over a good few times with the throttle wide open then try again.

If desperate and the above doesnt work remove plugs and squirt fuel mixture into bores. ReFit clean dry plugs with correct leads and give it full choke. It should at least start and try to run, failing that it needs a serious coat of looking at, pm me if you need more help or a parts list.

Thanks guys I will try out all the things you both suggested.I will let you know what happens.
It has started before but smoked the garage out and was revving very fast then cut out.
Rob.

Just cleaned the Carb with carb cleaner did spray all air hole and jets every hole I could see I checked spark plugs again good spark from both leads and plugs.
I did all of the comments but would not fire I even sprayed easy start in back of carb.
Could it be the compression I can fill the suck in and blow out from both holes. Help

After trying to start it and failed have you checked to see if the spark plugs are wet?
If they are dry then you are not getting fuel through. Is the choke butterfly acting properly and completely closing?
Never needed easystart myself, as long as you have a reasonable spark and compression put a quick squirt of 50:1 petrol/oil mix down each plug hole (screw clean plugs back in) and give it a pull. It should at least splutter into life and then die but hopefully will run with a bit of throttle. Try this method with and without full choke.
I have had several Selva's, one bought as a non runner was backfiring because the flywheel key way had sheared and the timing was out, but that is an extreme case. Another with low compression on one cylinder still started OK but had no power.

Air leaks after carb ie, reed valve, carb or crankcase leaks will make it hard to start.

Because this is not working petrol down spark hole and I do have a spark could it be compression.

My first car in 1969 was a 1961 Fiat 500. Sometimes this was difficult to start so I used to take the plugs out and warm them on the gas stove for a few minutes - not red hot but uncomfortable to hold - this always used to do the trick. If you don't have a gas stove you could try a cooks gas flame thing, a weed burner or one of those DIY gas blow lamps.
