Anybody have the part number of the distributor vacuum unit for a 1983 GTI? Seems I need one with vacuum advance and retard. Not sure if it makes a difference but this is a California car.

Same here. Found the same decal. I did get a pic of the part number of the distributor. Idk if it's the factory one but it's the one that came with the car. 0237020089. I do not have the vacuum switch installed on the vehicle. Don't know if someone deleted it along the way.

nyfam posted the gti dizzy pn, in my gti thread. He claims the weights were lighter ie, faster advance.

Just remembered I do have the pn he mentioned, but it’s ugly and needs to be refurbed.… another thing added to the never ending list.

Well it's been quite a while since I posted an update...

One of the initial items that needed to be addressed was the steering column. Here's a short video detailing the issue at hand:



As you can see from these pictures I also added the Tech-53 bearing retainer. The end product turned out nice compared to the original parts:











With the column sorted I can move on to the next item...
