Thanks, I do have a printout in the bus, it's just low-quality. Even the original image is. I'll have to scan one from the book I suppose.

The '79 diagram is pretty clear and almost the same as any other FI'd bus drawing. As far as differences it doesn't have the diagnostic wires and shows a Hall ignition setup verses points and condenser. As a big plus, it has the legend running across the bottom of the page verses being on a separate page.

Still waiting on my order from German Supply. I was told it 'likely' shipped out a week ago. Would only take one day to get to my place. Couple of emails and calls and still no response. I have read of others having the same experience, so I was prepared for some delay. I will keep everyone posted on when it is received or I get a response to my inquiries.

Parts came in, looks like I'm going to be pretty busy for a few days Wink

Anyone know the best way to crimp hose clamps? I doubt I have the proper tool for it.

It's unfortunate that this situation hasn't since changed. I would order so many more parts from them if it wasn't for the complete roll of the dice as to if/when they end up shipping. If I can get it anywhere else first, I will.
