Finally got a chance to go up to Miller VW/Suzuki in Stephens City on Rt. 11
just south of Winchester yesterday. I looked through the parts catalog with
Preston. We found what we thought was the correct part listed as #31 in the
schematic for the '82 diesel. I was surprised to see it was listed at 3mm or
3x2 or something like that. I had some trouble reading the schematic in the
poor lighting.
I hope that was the correct size as I thought it was bigger.  I ordered 1
meter for about $12. This is the hose that goes from the injector pump to the
first fuel injector. I think the part costs about $8.10 individually and is
listed as part number: 068 130 301

Maybe the ones that connect each injector are a different size? Was in a bit
of a hurry and did not look any further but will run by there again in a
couple days.
