They're standard in South Africa.;)
Hung some more artwork in the garage today.
My parents were very poor and when they gave me the extra "l" they couldn't afford to buy another consonant for my surname.
Just test them on the lead. I think they unscrew.
From previous similar problems on the forum I'd bet on the Hall sensor.
VW leads don't fail, only the resistor ends. Check it with an ohmeter.
Sounds like you know what you are doing.
VW coils are very rare to fail. The only problem I have ever seen is a high tension insulation fault.
It performs very well.;)
45 years in the trade and have worked with many thousands of SPST contactors.

I would agree, but would a mechanic?
Is that a NSW document?
They still didn't use a relay.
Early Golfs had a resistor.
The heater fan is designed to work when the alternator is charging. I don't know of any vehicle that uses a relay for the ignition coil and have...

I hate unnecessary amateur fixes.
Canberra club put on some good events. I look forward to going to more of them next year.
I would never use abrasive for cleaning new points. Thinners or metho etc.
I wouldn't really bother with a timing light. Just 12v test light or...
Check voltage at 15 (black) on the coil with 1 (green) connected. Make sure points are open.
