    Guys,
    Prior to me purchasing Alfie the engine was overhauled last year and the case changed due to a crack. Engine has not been back in the bus yet. There is what looks like a sensor mounted in the engine case on the flywheel, is this for a fuel injected bus? I'm going to be running dual solex carbies and the bus was in a million pieces when i bought it so i'm thinking the bus the replacement engine case came from was efi. Forgive my ignorance I'm just picking stuff up as i go along!!

    I believe the plug you have circled is something to do with diagnostics during factory stages?

    That is what I was told long ago

    It's a magnetic pick up for the timing light and tacho for the diagnostic terminal that some vw's had that allowed them to be connected the vw specific tune-up machines at some dealerships.
    There's 2 pins on the flywheel that trigger it
