Was going but will only start with the key after being push started..i put in new salenide ,reconditioned starter,coil,belt,plugs,and it still won't start.its not even sparking engine number is 12ha61aa 105982
engine was changed from a one litre austin to 1275 metro or so i was told..i have this car eight years and not a bother except i had to push start it..
Do the simple things first, remove a spark plug and have it earthed against the engine and check for a spark as you turn the engine, next check for fuel, by way of smell after a while the unburned fuel will make itself known, then for a small cost get a compression tester and check the compression, with these 3 it will start only by isolating the problem can you go further to solving the problem.

forgot to charge new battery up to 12.6vdc reseted.
the head lamps work , keys in pocket (by law) and
are #1 first thing to trouble shoot when dead (easiest)
so, got 12v at all under hood fuses? ????????
id bet not. and any $10 voltmeter can find this easy.
buy one. use it. and save a bundle....
I'm syill working on the problem but I swapped the throttle bore assemby , put new cap & rotor amd double checked the timeing (Both belt & distributer with timing light) and engine still floods,. Wm going th check for kinked return hose next.
I have had a similar problem which resulted from a worn starter motor. You say you put in a new battery not just charged the old one right? With my car, the engine would make a single click noise when i tried to start it. that was it. music played lights would go on but no engine. Check with your mechaninc if you think it might be the starter. I dont want you to buy a new one and realize your starter was not the problem
