Question about 1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet
After installing the manifold I realize that I mess up the distributor position. I have try to get the TDC in order to align the rotor to #1 cylinder. I have use my fingers, compresion gauge, looking to the rockers and yet I have not being succesfull. Any inputs? Thanks
Before doing anything else crank the engine to see which way it turns counterclockwise or clockwise.With the distributor cap removed. look for and locate the number one spark plug wire. If the engine turns clockwise you will have to install the wires in firing order clockwise.
After removing the number one spark plug. Turn the motor manually by hand until you can see that the piston is at the top. Check by inserting a rubber or platic straw that it is at the top. With both intake and outtake valves pressed down. you have to remove the valve cover for that. insert the distributor so that the rotor points to the number one spark plug. replace the cap and replace the wires as explianed. Clockwise or counter clockwise.
