It's probably the 2226cc 100kW 136bhp engine - I think the 2309 with cat
arrived in1989. What is the engine and chassis code?

I'm preety sure Procon-10 wasn't avauilable in 1988. I have a brochure for
1989 and Procon-10 is not mentioned. Check your owner's manual.

Haynes is good value - the quattro stuff is pretty robust and only needs the
propshaft UJ greased (grease nipple in middle of UJ). Bentley is far more
detailed but a lot more expensive (cost GBP65 for my 80q). It also doesn't
give cheats like Haynes does (my favourite comes from a Morris Minor Haynes
manual in the section that describes how a chassis component is in the way
of removing the master cylinder - "thousands have bent it and lived").
