Can you not take the crank sensor off your old engine, put on this engine, see if it does the trick.

Worth a try I guess?
right pulling hair out now changed it over from my old one and now no spark at all :(

anyone got any ideas ?

ignition switch faulty too + immobiliser fault?
a friend had a mk3 golf that just turned over and had no spark.. when he wiggled the key about whilst turning the engine over it worked.

i cant remember if you can adjust them on the abf? may of been the early 9a kr motors,, is it the two bolt jobby?

a strobe gun would be the best way i suppose, you have got the firing order correct? when it run, did it idle ok or rough ?

you can..
it doesnt need to be running to be read up.. just flick the ignition on so it can communicate with the ECU :)
