    When you checked for fuel, may i ask how you did this?

    Did you remove the fuel rail and see if the indavidual injetcors were spraying?

    1 a flow and the other a return. when i took the plugs out and turned the engine it was firing the fuel out

    right, so fuel seems ok however the fuse blowing would indicate some kind of fault. The coil wiring is a common short, i would try the injectors plugged in to make sure they are firing. If they are it's most likely the crank sensor failing and send incorrectly timed signals for the spark/spray in my experience so far

    Assuming all was well with the physical timing. It's not turning over too fast by any chance is it? I have had a bottom pulley key shear, that put the physical timing out, but the belt looked intact still, and it still sparked and sprayed as it should

    funny you say that, the wiring did look f***ed from the heat off the engine.could see the copper cores on most wires.the fuse has held while i tried turning it over
