Couple of questions for mk2f / mk3 dudes. Nephews bready is intermitantly not starting. When it does it runs like a dream. I'm used to mk2s so there are a few differences I'm not used to, that and he's a fair bit away so I'm not at car to hoke around it. I'm assuming that all mk3s are injected, and if so would you normally hear pump prime when turn ignition on? Where is the fuel pump relay and what number is it? Cheers in advance 😀 I'll get him on here and post a thread in gallery as it's a lovely looking wee car

- FOR SALE
Hi everyone, Little background story.. when I was 17 I hastily bought a terribly painted purple breadvan, drove it 4 hours solid home and brought it to Lancashire. I sold it a long time ago and recently on my 21st birthday found out it was for sale so bought it back! (Slight downgrade from the abarth but the sentiment this car his is unbelievable). Now to cut it short, the car was a stead and never once let me down. I towed the car back to the garage, it’s been off the road almost 3 years, and was apparently in “dry storage” however, there was litres of liquid under the back seats, rust and damp everywhere and a lovely infestation of maggots in the firewall. Regardless, I put an old knackered mk1 fez battery up, hooked it up to a jumper and first go started up, although it was running on 3 cylinders. I then put a new dizzy cap on (correct and correct firing order), new plugs , battery and changed cylinder 4 HT lead as it wasn’t sparking hence the 3 cylinders. The problem is the car now won’t start and the plugs are getting seriously wet, it just comes gushing through, after drying the plugs many times and trying to run it solely on ether still no joy! (I forgot to mention, 4 gallons of old fuel it started up on. Have since drained and refueled as well as cranked the crap out). I was just wondering if this is a common problem or anyone has had the same? Any help massively appreciated! The car has covered 171k. Thanks!
