There is a 'common' problem of flooding the engine resulting in? What should you do to prevent it and what can be done to elliminate it please? I havent got the car yet, 05 plare 230bhp vers

The flooding issue while not a an everyday type issue it is common for Rotary engines, typically when the car is first started and then shut off right away. The owner manual does describe the process to recover from this problem.

Starting a Flooded Engine-

If the engine fails to start, it may be
flooded (excessive fuel in the engine).

Follow this procedure:

1. Depress the accelerator all the way and
hold it there. - (This acts as a cut-off switch for the fuel pump, thus keeping it from pushing fuel into the system)

2. Turn the ignition switch to the START
position and hold it there-for up to
10 seconds. If the engine starts,
release the key and accelerator
immediately because the engine will
suddenly rev up.

3. If the engine fails to start, crank it
without using the accelerator-for up
to 10 seconds.

Alt. method: There's another way to do it pulling the the Fuel Pump Fuse, then with fuse out try starting the engine 3-4 times about 7 sec. each time -do not pump the gas pedal- this should clean out the excess fuel.

Then re-install the fuel pump fuse and try starting the engine 3-4 times (this time you may be able to start it in the 1st or 2dn try) about 7 sec. each time -do not pump the gas pedal- you should be able to hear the engine start very rough, at this time you can give it some gas to get it going and you will probably have a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust which is normal. Run it at about 2000 rpm until it clears out.

Now there are something to also know that is not mentioned in the manual. Most likely by the time you figure your engine is flooded you will have already tried to start the engine a dozen times and your battery will most likely be somewhat spent. This in turn will leave you with hardly any power to turn the engine for 10 sec. at a time as described in the above procedure. You will need to recharge your battery in order to do all the necessary steps successfully.

Do I need to remve pully on crankshaft, How do Itime engine

No, you don't need to remove the pully.

Here's how you set the timing:

You will need a timing light and a 1/2 inch or 13mm wrench.

1. Take a rag and clean the timing marks on the pulley and the timing cover. If you have any white out type correction fluid, you can also paint the marks white, to make them easier to see.

2. Start the engine and run until it is warm... about 5 minutes (the upper radiator hose will be warm).

3. Shut off the engine and find the timing connector, a grey plastic plug in the wiring harness near the distributor. Unplug the timing connector.

4. Loosen (but do not remove) the nut holding the distributor to the engine.

5. Connect your timing light. The magnetic pickup goes on the number 1 plug wire (number one is the front cylinder in your engine) and the other two leads connect to the battery, red on positive, black on negative.

6. Start the engine and point the timing light at the timing marks on the timing cover. You should be able to see the mark on the pulley as well. Gently rotate the distributor until the timing mark on the pully aligns with the 10 degree BTDC (before top dead center) mark. You might want to scribe a mark on your distributor before you start so that if you accidentally move the distributor too far and the engine dies, you can put it back where it was in order to restart the engine.

Once you have the timing set to 10 deg BTDC, shut the engine off, retighten the distributor nut and reconnect the timing connector.

Water pump and timing belt replacement

confirm you timing belt marking at the engine before you start the work. then dismantle all the belt one by one until you reach the timing cover. mark the timing mark again. then start dismantle the timing belt set. after all the belt are out, open the water pump and start to put back the new part by using reverse order from the opening list. make sure the timing marking are the same as you check at the first time. before you start the engine, make sure you turn the engine 2 or 3 round and make sure no part are hitting. good luck.

Jump timing want start Mechanic just put new timing belt on

If the timing did jump and assuming no damage to the engine you'll need to get in to the engine and replace the timing belt and tensioner. This can be done on your own if your up to it. With the right tools it will take 5-6 hours. In the meantime do not attempt to start or run the engine.
I hope this may have helped,
