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.
