Under the bonnets the place to start.

What's she doin as a nonstarter. Cranking over?
I'd have a quick look around for the obvious under the bonnet.
Broken/ split vac lines.

Also has it been running the same otherwise or has been running rough?
Could be a sensor issue

Im dealing with similar issues in my EL. I'd love to say they are related but hard to say.

Have a look in to the gearbox inhibitor switch. When mine wont start, I give it a blast of raw fuel to the intake or aerostart. however, its even getting more difficult sometimes with that. Given that, I'd say in my case its a fuel issue
