Default Non starter

New to this site, so hello everyone.

9000cs. Was running perfectly, then had to crank it a few times before it would fire. That lasted two days. Then it wouldn't fire unless the key was released and cranked a second time. Another day like that. Finally, as above but with barely enough power to move a few yards before stalling. It hasn't fired AT ALL since.

It was checked by the recovery man who found fuel and spark but then gave up and towed me to the local garage. They could'nt find a problem either.

So, so far I've swapped the DI into my Aero and the Aero DI into the CS - Aero starts but not CS. New set of correct NGKs. New crank sensor. Tried the Aero ignition switch in the CS. Sat in the boot and listened to the pump clicking when the mechanic cranked it - the garage had already checked fuel was getting through.

At this point I've run out of ability and ideas.

I really don't want to have to break/scrap a rust free car that ran perfectly before, but if it won't start.....

Any help very much apprecited.
