[Vwdiesel] when it rains it pours

So, thanks to help from the list, I got connected with an ECM.  It will 
arrive in a couple of days.  I then hopped into the trusty old '85 TD to 
get to work thankful that I have a backup car.  Except that it won't 
quit backing up.  The frame that supports the clutch pedal broke in 
three places while I was going down the driveway and I couldn't 
therefore disengage the clutch to get it out of reverse.  The rest of 
the day was spent discovering that this is a part VW did not ever intend 
to be replaced.  Fortunately, there's a muffler shop a bike ride away 
that has a MIG welder.  At least I now know why the clutch seemed spongy 
for the longest time....
