Cold start - usual drills. Check you’re seeing 12v at plugs and work back from there if not. If you are check plugs. Also check pump and cam timing are Bob on.

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

:shock:

Blimey. What a ‘mare.
You can do injection rail loom in situ- just take off manaifold to rocker cover brackets. Is doable and saves sooooo much time.

Pretty much got spares of everything for looms if you need them.

Re: AAZ fuel pump timing
