Question about 1989 Volkswagen Golf
Just replaced clucth and flywheel it would crank and run before the replacement
Your smelling gas because it's flooded, so gas isn't an issue.
sounds like no spark to me? could be something to do with that wire but i couldnt gauraantee that.
if you can pull a spark plug out and see if it sparks when you turn the engine over, but you need to hold it on the engine block or another earth on the engine otherwise it won't spark.
if it doesn't spark something is wrong with ignition system.(perhaps the wire).
If it does spark then the ignition timing is out. depends what is easier i'd be inclined to attach the wire especially if it naturally sits in that position,since it would be less time consuming than removing plugs.
but a least we have it narrowed down to the ignition system
