      That's helpful to know. Thank you. I removed the dashpot to create more room. But if the ECU in question is coded for an automatic transmission Mk3, without a dashpot, does that affect throttle...

      Thanks. Yes. Swapped ECT sensor, Ohm'd out wires to ECU, ground, cleaned IAC several times. When tested with battery, it "snaps" open. However. I still wonder if it's sticking closed at times or is...

      Hi folks.

      This is for an ABA in a Vanagon but the engine management is stock OBD1 Motronic 2.9

      Hi folks.

      For OBD1 ABA in '88 Vanagon.

      If ECU is from a Mk3 with automatic transmission, does ECU 58 need to be grounded even though there's no Mk3 auto tranny computer etc. ?

      Or, if...

      Thanks garryt

      Ya, the Vanagon body has a strap between transaxle nose mount and body and on the WBX engine, a braided strap from engine to frame similar to the Mk3 Jetta strap from head to...

      so I got off my butt and googled the part number on the PS pulley. (I wasn't sure I'd mixed it up with some other VW pulley) It shows as Mk3 2.0

      I guess as long as the v belt is sized ok for that...

      So my apologies for being so tardy with an update. The flipped fuel rail thing should work fine. Shaping the 1/8" aluminum so it was "level" to intake and rail took a bit of fussing around but is not...

      Thanks for the link. Good to get rough idea of rail bracket thickness. I'd use much thicker material since rail would be cantilevered further from intake mount point. I'll be sticking with the OEM...

      Since I'm mounting this ABA in a Vanagon, flipping the rail would keep fuel hoses from running back and across engine to pulley end of engine. So, shorter fuel hose run, less chance of heat soak to...

      "Flip" Fuel Rail 180 ?

      Hi all.

      I'm part way through installing an ABA OBD1 Motronic into an '88 Vanagon.

      Images show mock up of fuel rail installed end for end. (180). Am thinking the brackets would be aluminum.
