to be honest mate, struggle to remember, been many a year since ive tinkered with the mk111
but think the VV was a standered fit, but were often changed to manual choke webers.
ignition timing is a high possibility for your problem, also have a close look at the ht lead connections on the cap and coil, make sure they're clean and pushed fully home..in other words, give the rubber caps a spray of wd40 and slide them back up the lead, push the leads fully home then slide the rubber caps back.
dont forget, if you dont know history of timing belt, then change that and the water pump as matter of course..think they used to recommend every 36k, but i used to do them at 30k as many failed a bit early.
was this a daily/regular runner before you bought it, or was it stored up
