    Mk1 golf questions

    Hey guys, just got a few questions hopefully someone with some knowledge can help me out! I'm trying to get my mk1 to start after sitting for a year and some change. I'm having issues with the engine to even attempt to kick over. Each key turn it takes 3-4 times for it to actually try to start up. I've had a look over the ignition wiring, I'm hoping someone can verify that it's correct?

    Also are the HT leads in the correct layout for the mk1 1.6 petrol?

    It's had a working started reinstalled, it's trying to turn over and it's trying to suck fuel. Could anyone give an idea as to what this electrical issue could be?

    Thanks in advanced!

    From memory it was 1-3-4-2 which looks like the leads are correct to me. As for the coil, I cant remember sorry haha - perhaps someone can share some insight.

    You mentioned it takes 3-4 times for it to try and start, do you mean it takes 3-4 times turning the key to get a crank? If so, that's definitely ignition wiring or perhaps poor grounding.
