Thatís what my brother was thinking. When I was troubleshooting my van for a no start he was asking me if there was any kind of diagnostic we can do other than the Bentley troubleshooting. According the everything Iíve read there isnít for the early 80ís vans. We also looked into what that little black and silver plug was on the dash in front of the passenger seat. Apparently itís a plug for a heated jacket? Lol.

What is this ?


Dealership diagnostic plug, ignore it.
It mounts in the flywheel housing, top right side, most just cut it off flush.

I have a 1987 doka with the 1.6 TD. Without a good shop manual for this motor my question is more about "what part is missing?" on this manifold vent. Any ideas?

The "four thing connector" connects to the vehicle speed sensor on the speedometer. See if your speedometer has the VSS on it. I added a hybrid VSS on my van:

Think

Interesting. I'll have to check if the rest of the system is there. Weird though.

That connector is unused. Don't ask me what it is for, I've never seen it connected on any van I worked on :/

Unused connector on my Manual Ď90
Maybe it was for a dash light in other cars using the same computer

Hi

Removed the glovebox yesterday to work on the new stereo. What's this, and specifically what is this 4-thing connector with three wires in it?

Where should I plug it so I can hopefully gain 30 horsepower?

After a bit of research, the grey box is a Cruise Control ECU? But I don't have Cruise Control on the van... Is it some sort of prewiring?

The last photo is of a seat organizer. The piece in top of photo belongs on the bottom of the other piece.
Also supposed to be two hooks to go over seat top.
Itís made for police but we use to get them at phone company for our trucks.
Itís molded to hold a baton,3-cell plus maglite.
Two spots for hand cuffs.
Itís broken..toss it.

I see supports for the exhaust system (you'll have fun finding where they each go), engine tins (left & right) and tie rod boots.

I do not recognize the subject of the last photo.

It's just a vacuum hose that goes to the aux air regulator. You can take it to FLAPs and get a new one.
