I held the valve in on the fuel rail while my dad spun it and it was like a water fountain and i took the cam pulley cover off and the belt is perished to buggery. i'm too use to my old school cars for engine work so hopefully i can get someone down to check the timing. looking at both pulleys where they look like stars. there both not exactly inline. one looks more turned than the other if you understand what i mean.

 

Thanks

Found that the engine timing is spot in and that there is no air leaks and my dads mate has it in mind it's fuel starvation?

when you spin the engine either if it decides to run or not, fuel gushes from the valve when it's held in, so would it be a case of faulty injectors or weak fuel pump that keeps coming in and out with working? or a sensor? you can hear the pump clear as day every time the key is turned

yeah that's something i'll jump straight on as it took me 4 hours getting the tank out as the bolts was that badly damaged by a previous owner and now it's all sorted and does half go like rubbish off a shovel :) 

i'm going to do the pas belt aswell and next week, i'll get the schutz gun out and under coat the whole underneath :)
