Yes all connected correctly, thus presuming cylinder 1 is timing belt end?

Well and truly stumped.

Thanks

Getting worried now about flywheel. I have just read online about cars not starting after flywheel replacement....

 Flywheel was replaced as for some reason my clutch would not go on the other engine, there were no dowels for the clutch to sit on, so I just swapped them, does the flywheel have to be put back in a certain position?

The ignition timing may be taken off the fliwheel, thats how the ECU knows the crank position  if its in the wrong position the spark may happen at completely the wrong time

Haynes assumes the replacement parts are identical to (and compatible with) the original ones

 

Problem is, you don't know if this is the reason the engine does not start

This has now baffled 2 mechanics?!

 

 Timing is correct, fuel ok, no fault codes new crank sensor as one mechanic said it had intermittent spark, how many times should each plug spark when taken out and observed when cranking? i.e., my plugs fire sort of  /...../...../...../ should it be more of a ./././././././.... - I imagine that doesn't make much sense but imagine the forward slash to be spark, full stop to be pause, basically should they be firing a lot quicker than they are?

Thanks

Are the leads in a decent condition aswell as the coil pack as that would effect the spark quality and frequency?
