Timing problem

Post by Tgr »

Hi guys I have a 1.8 8 v carb VW golf engine. I've lined up all the timing marks perfectly. With piston 1 on top and cam mark on the side on the valve cover. Crank pulley mark line up with the pulley that rotates the distributor. Distributor is on plug one. Also I've got fuel and spark but still it will not start. Is the any body that can perhaps be able to help me. Thanks :bang:
