Ì´ve got problem to atsrt my bug with 1600-engine. The battery is good and the starter-engine goes around but the engine doesn´t start. I can push it to a start and then it runs and drives good, but it doesn´t start normal. Any ideas?

Thanks/Jonas, Sweden

Could be many things. For starters, check your carb and compression ratio.

Well, if the engine can be push-started then fuel supply, electricity etc. should be fine. I didn't get you, does your starter turn the engine itself (check the pully while starting - you need one more person - if it is turning, then I am puzzled) or just runs on its own. If it does not then check starter-engine, actually the little black box on the top of it - it does not insert smaller wheel into engines' flywheel and does not turn the engine.
