    I made the mistake of parking nose up on a steep driveway. When I came back the right carby was dripping fuel(!) I've moved the Kombi onto flat ground & aired out the engine bay (not leaking now that it's level) but she won't start.
    Any ideas?

    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START

    your sump is probably full of fuel
    check oil level and signs of fuel contamination but I would ...
    CHANGE OIL regardless [and filter]

    then pull plugs and dry them, reinstall
    don't ump pedal but

    listen carefuly when you start it and look for oil leaks

    Have a read here:
    Fuel Leaks…again
    Sounds like the same issue….
    Take particular note of Andrew's advice - 1500king
    Cheers, Mark

    Thanks all. Oil didn't look contaminated but dropped it anyway
