Given current economic conditions I’ve been getting the garage cleaned up and thinking about getting the polo into the garage... connected the jump leads and it started up straight away... ran a couple of minutes and seemed to be ok.. then it stopped.... I’m wondering the earth lead from the charger to the chassis seems to have a few strands that’s pulled out the end clip is that enough to upset everything???

Hello you love me my youth caught up again.
But I don't want to hear about a midlife crisis

I became infected with G-Lader in 1997 when I was only 22 years old
I had the opportunity to get hold of a level 2 86C 2F made by a B&B employee.
It was all about me after the first test drive.
Unfortunately, with the little one, after a year, I had an unpleasant encounter with a meadow.
Say a departure into botany when the road is wet.
So a new one was needed. Another G40, of course.
Original condition, 1st hand and only 35tkm run.
I had almost 3 years of fun with it until I sold it.

But the G fever didn't catch up with me again.
And so 2 years ago I slowly but surely started looking for the most original G40 possible.
But see for yourself.

i will upload blocks for you when i next have a tinker it will be one day this having to work around the weather at the moment sadly.
it’s an original bosch i will get the part number next time i’m out
whats the part number on the dizzy

what does the measuring blocks say on the computer

its typical if theres a sensor fault for the revs to not change when you pull the sensor
i’ve checked timing marks probably 10 times i’ve allowed for movement in crank marker and also the fact i’ve had head skinned twice.
dizzy i picked a replacement up from an auto jumble last weekend funnily enough and it had new cap leads and arm on it and was assured it came of a fully working engine.
blue temp sender i offered a replacement from vw so that’s been fitted
and all earths have been cleaned or replaced if they don’t look up to the job.
as i say my main concern is the fact nothing happens when i unplug the blue temp sender ive unplugged and checked every sensor on the car.and also have vw software on the laptop and no faults are coming up which seems good.
thanks for the reply by the way very much appreciated
start with the basics , cam belt timing sometimes folk get the marks mixed up , is it the correct dizzy part number as others fit but run badly

are all earths fitted and clean

have you tested the blue temp sender on a meter?  check again at the ecu plug

does the car have the diag plug can read a few bits of data /fault codes

Idea was to drop the lump into mkII coupe S

If you squint, can see the theory!

Giorgetto Giugiaro got it right, apart from the 4 door..
