Startup after rebuild

Click here for an interesting YouTube video on starting up an A4 after a rebuild.

Follow along and comment on how you might have done the troubleshooting to get the initial bugs out.

Note: This is not an MMI video, but rather a personal one which has received a lot of visibility on YouTube.

A no start condition after overhaul is frustrating - to say the least. My first rebuild (many years ago, not an A4) also had a no go condition.
Diagnostic tools? My favorite is a can of starting ether. It will tell you whether you're dealing with a fuel issue or a spark issue. Take it from there.
