so I have bought an edition blue 1991 8v non runner (i have no history and no idea how long it's been sitting) thinking it was going to be as easy as rebuild the engine wiring loom (earth problem) and we would be good to go but no!. I've remade the wiring loom for the engine making sure that all is properly located with the help of my boss who is an auto leccy so i'm thinking i'm good on that side, i have good spark (although i have now mucked up the hall sensor somehow, by pulling it off it's mount to the dizzy) but anyway before that good spark when i pulled a plug and put it next to the open cylinder hole i was getting ignition ( fireworks!) and i could see the petrol misting out of the cylinder, my belief is that somehow i have a fuelling problem, whilst turning over it wants to start maybe on two cylinders but doesn't quite catch, could this be old fuel?, i took all the injectors out and tested them they all have good resistance and spray a good format, I am new to Digifant and Golf's and am only geussing at what could be the problem, i know there's a load of people on here that know these systems in and out and i'm hoping someone has an insight as to why it won't start, i've statically checked the timing and seems to be o.k although when we're on tdc the rotor points at no.4 but changing that around to no.1 i get even less firing sounds! (in theory 180 degrees out shouldn't be a problem? or not i don't know). if anyone has some useful insights i'd love to hear them, i was thinking maybe somnething to do with the fuel pressure regulator? i have checked the fuel pump it does as it should it primes and pulses on the impulse the only thing i haven't checked is if the injectors are pulsing as i don't know how to do that (but i'm geussing a led diode may be the answer there?) any help greatly appreciated, many thanks, Rich.
