Is the tank rusty?  Could be clogging carb.  Not Northampton, but where I am in Wycombe there's a great mechanic.  Pete at PGB motorcycles.  Not too far for you.......

Which ignition system on the D7?

Coil and battery or flywheel magneto? Got a spark?

If flywheel magneto they sometimes wont go unless the points gap is reduced quite a lot - down to 6 or 8 thou.

If it recently been resurected after being out of use for a long time then leaking crankcase seals  a possibility.
