Just finished a rebuild on my 16cc 1979 FI Beetle engine. The only way it will start is with starter fluid. After start, in runs great. Any ideas?
Look in your service manual. There is a start injector on the manifold, not at the cylinders. Check and make sure it works. They get plugged up and cause this. If thats ok check the start solenoid on the right rear wheel well
