      I see what you mean, I never differentiated the names. Some have this, some have that. While not technically correct it's all just CIS of one flavor or another to me. :)

      What air control valve did VW not use? edit: did they use that three pin stepper motor everyone else had for LH and such later?

      I mean this in the kindest way possible, but if you check CIS correctly, it'll show you if the fuel pump is bad. The entire system lives around fuel pressure.

      Use the shop manual, have the proper...

      I would personally go back to stock and start from scratch with the diag and setup info in the Bentley.

      Huh, not shocked since the little car is little, they did a good job of it not being obvious. Let us know how it turns out.
      If they are power, mind the door switches.

      Never had a 201 car but I'd have guessed they were a LOT wider compared to w123/124/126 stuff of the era.

      I can tell you the springs break on the bottom, otherwise great seats in older MB's.
      If...

      I think a lot of manufacturers have changed the tooth profile a bit on belts, I suspect it's for noise reduction on applications other than VW diesels.

      I guess it gives one a hell of a lot of bargaining down room when selling maybe?

      Granted the price is nuts, but I'm really not seeing anything too out there. Take off the fogs, the hood cowl and the visor thing and it looks like a nice truck, the paint is a matter of taste....

      Most likely you can RTV it enough that it'll not leak, if the outer flat of the case is buggered up, smooth it down, same with the inside using very fine emery cloth or sand paper.

      Good to have and it'll tell you whats going on, but it isn't going to talk to CIS and tailor the fuel mixture at cruise.

      Loss if ditching lambda on a stock or stockish motor. Knock sensing should be on hi comp motors, gti should have had by 83. If its gone you are missing out, or don't have a stock motor possibly.

      Couple more likely things than the WUR if cold start is the only complaint.
