Hi Charlie, are you using some sort of igniter when you are trying to start it? See my Sachs thread, in the cold the best I could get was a puff of smoke without using an igniter.
Had it been running previously? The first day I went to look at my MG40 we could not get it to start even with the igniters. The seller and myself tried until we were both about to drop and all we got was some smoke and the occasional bark, you could tell it was close but it just refused to start. The seller said he would get the injector serviced, when I returned we removed the igniter holder and turned the engine over a few times, fitted an igniter and the engine started first pull over compression.
