Some time ago, like over 40, I had a Hillman Imp Californa.
One day I had flooded engine and consequential flat battery.
I took the plugs out and put them under the cooker grill. Whilst they were heating up I jacked the car up one side and put in second gear.
Hot plugs popped straight into head, ignitition on turned the front wheel by hand three times, it started !
