just found this, looks great and I need help with a dead MK3 1.6i
Failed MOT due to all break pipes rusted,wishbone in fact 16 points on sheet,they couldn't do emissions as it smoked too much Decided to get another lump.
So have replaced my 1.6i engine with another, but struggling to fire it up. Have replaced cambelt,engine turns by hand and timing correct, but no lights on dash.I checked earth connections, cleaned a couple, connected battery but still no lights on dash, Headlights work though after a few minutes smelt petrol,found it pouring off inlet manifold. took plenham chamber off ,all inlet ports were full with petrol as was air intake and throttle body and all cylinders.
Does anybody have ideas I am close to breaking, same as engine
