1982 Vw Rabbit, Replaced fuel pump and relined up cam timing marks and cannot get it to start
I put a 1.8l vw motor in my 82 rabbit, previously had a 1.7. I drove on it for 2 days then the
fuel pump went out on a hot day so i replaced it then messed with the timing and just
cannot get it to start up again. I have lined everything up to vw specs. Tranny hole
distributor and cam. Also i replaced the fuel pump relay along with the fuel pump. and
distributor. So now it will like be about to start but just not start all the way.
is the distributor oriented correctly? you've got a "silent" cam that works the distributor...really should line it up, firing on the one the camshafts on the "ignite" point and the crankshaft on TDC~ got to make sure it's right...perhaps the distributor vacuum advance is stuck in the full on position...did you golf tee it?~
honestly sounds off by one tooth~
i have it all in the proper place
