WTB: idle control unit plugs for 1983 air cooled CA vanagon

Post by 83AC » Tue Aug 02, 2016 4:44 pm

The wires from the hall unit to the idle control unit plug and from the plug to the harness broke at the base of the plugs. I'm looking for the plugs with some additional wire on them that I can splice into. Currently we have the idle control unit bypassed and the wires soldered together, which works okay, but I'd like to reconnect the unit. Anybody have some from an old parts bus or recommend a yard I can call? I've had luck with Avery's for some parts, but I am willing to try other places.

Thanks,
Anderson

Nope - I have not resolved this yet . . . Still bypassed.
Preparing to take a long cross country trip and without time as a resource to do some work on my own, I'm going to have to take her into a shop in Portland or locally to get some service done (replacing some bushings, alignment, maybe check on that bucking issue again).
