     Well, I think this may be cause of your surging problem.
     Did Clair actually have the distributor in stock? On
     a 20V Quattro that needed a distributor...it took
     Clair (Audi of A) almost 4 weeks to get one. In the
     meantime the owner of the car managed to get Audi to
     pay for his rental car because of the delay.  I'll
     check the Bosche book to see if you can get the sensor
     alone, without having to buy the distributor. I have
     this sneaking suspicion that no parts will be available
     so that they can sell the complete unit. I wonder what
     the hall unit is compatible with? Probably some VW
     application. I'll let ya know tomorrow.

     If worse comes to worse, hopefully there is no core
     on the old distributor, if you're not sentimentally
     attached to it, I'd like to try and make a camshaft
     "locating flange"  tool out of it for timing belt
