Lewis, fit the barrel without the pistons but use all the base gaskets and make sure you have a gap between the barrel and crankcase, (no bolts fitted) I have had several where the barrel will sit flush to the case without any bolts fitted which means the cork / “o” rings are not compressed when the bolts are tightened, seals not compressed = no crankcase pressure = no start.
