I've got a leak on the brake line at the near the rear left wheel.
There is a valve with 4 lines running to it then a couple other
connectors on a spring with a bracket. This is an 85 NA Diesel Jetta
and the lines and valve are extremely corroded. I would imagine the
only way to repair this would be to cut all 4 lines, replace the valve,
and then splice with compression fittings? This looks expensive and
time consuming. The body is rusting away and the front suspension needs
I am going to offer the engine for $500 if there is interest. It is a
Jack Ewald rebuild from dieselparts.com, the injection pump is rebuilt.
It has only 25k miles and runs great (test drive/compression check to
demonstrate.) Gets 45 mpg, I love the car but am just too busy to keep
working on the chassis.
